IT’S JOURNAL THING!!!

journal1

People belonging to ‘art world’ like doodlers, designers, artists, etc. have their own dimensions yet have so many similarities. These people have the abilities to mold themselves in any situation and they can express it in a tangible form. Creating a journal for everything makes them a ‘tourist’ as they create reminiscences and then note them as memories. These memories always have some thought and a spirit to get remembered. For a designer, journals are their printed sheets and their eyes are their cameras with their minds as the printers.

 

journal2A to-do list is always there to get filled. To make reports, create forecasts, designs, a collection, a doodle art, a landscape or portrait art, a journal is always present there to join all the points with each other and then come up with something new and original. This originality defines an individual’s thoughts and his work. A self-made, self-believed thing has got a more powerful spirit than the captured and printed one. The cycle always runs alike, somewhere somehow it is not highlighted much to create a journal in the fashion industry but you need to collect all of it what you have got because that’s how successful ones have worked.

journal3It could be anything as it’s said it is a Journal thing! To match all the points, link them and create something different from everything is the daily task for every creative person out here. People are journalizing everywhere every second to create a trend report for others.

 

journal4That is why it is all observed and processed every time to run the fashion world because it can trickle up or trickle down the story anytime.

For a designer, it’s a die-hard thing not maintaining a journal and to gather all research creatively in just one scarp book. Every scrap out there has some emotion, research, thought, idea and knowledge with a beautiful story behind it and only a journal can spell it out loud.

Whether it’s a doodler, graphic artists or someone else journal teaches the following to them:
-fonts
-arrangements
-to express
-to compile
-to place
-to clear everything out
-to create
-and always to get to the result!

SUSTAINABILITY THIS TIME

The fashion industry today is a multi billion dollar business which is affecting everyone around the world in some way!

Fashion is the second most polluting industry in the world, following right after oil. Due to speedy production and over consumption, the fashion industry has landed itself on an environmentally damaging path, much different than 100 years ago. It was not until fast fashion took over our closets, that the real numbers started to show. In today’s world sustainability is a very important factor to focus on as the fashion industry is growing day by day.

Many organizations are working in the favor to promote sustainability. One such great example is PETA! PETA focuses its attention on the four areas in which the largest numbers of animals suffer the most intensely for the longest periods of time: in laboratories, in the food industry, in the clothing trade, and in the entertainment industry. We also work on a variety of other issues, including the cruel killing of rodents, birds, and other animals who are often considered “pests” as well as cruelty to domesticated animals.

Every year, millions of animals are killed for the clothing industry—all in the name of fashion. Whether the clothes come from Chinese fur farms, Indian slaughterhouses, or the Australian outback, an immeasurable amount of suffering goes into every fur-trimmed jacket, leather belt, and wool sweater.

This tells clearly that we are heading to wear the living ones after killing them, just to wear! No one will get agree that we all are involved in killings just to look nice and different.

In the year 2018, people took a step towards getting vegan moreover to promote and get awareness of sustainability. Organizations like Arture, which is vegan fashion accessories brand, are in the running to make this world sustainable by using materials like 100 per cent Mediterranean-derived natural cork fabric, which is sustainable and cruelty-free, to design sleek wallets, handbags and travel accessories for women and men.

It’s very harsh to listen and see that just to look good, people do killings; to obtain materials in this fashion industry, they do not care of lives. But on the other side it’s true that people are working over it as well. We should keep in mind the following things at the time of starting over a garment-

  • Think of organic fabrics
  • Ignore fabrics like fur, pure wool and more
  • Try to design the garments which do not include animal skins
  • Think and look twice for the fabrics and it’s blends
  • Last but not the least,

Love animals with the real smile not the greedy smile!!!

love-animal

3 Challenges Every Entrepreneur Must Overcome

No matter the industry, these universal roadblocks require business owners to balance immediate needs with longer-range strategies.

entrepreneurshipIn this entrepreneurial world people are running crazily for their start ups and because of this race, they have not considered the key points to survive. This race is a never ending one and always gets longer and difficult. We face challenges every second in our lives, some of which gets resolved and some we just let go off. But, is it the right thing to drop the challenge when you think you’ll face a lot of difficulties to complete it? Doing this is nothing but loosing entrepreneurial identity.

This means that we are somewhere getting unfocused and demoralized, in fact not facing the reality of being motivated.

Let’s focus on the three challenges that every entrepreneur must overcome-

1. Avoiding burnout.

The passion that often makes entrepreneurs successful is their downfall. Many of us devote time, money, passion and energy to our ventures. We run the risk of being consumed if we stay plugged in all the time. We need time to disconnect and get some peace to motivate ourselves and to regain the ability to think politely and not in the chaos. Many entrepreneurs employ the 80/20 rule while on vacation, i.e, 80 percent of time is dedicated to relaxation, and 20 percent is spent on work.

No matter which solution you choose, it’s essential to carve out time to relax, truly recharge your batteries and maintain a healthy mindset. If you don’t take care of your mental health, your business ultimately will suffer.

2. Tracking cash flow.

Cash flow is the lifeblood of any small business. In fact, poor cash-flow management is one of the main reasons businesses fail. Tracking cash inflows and outflows may not be the easiest or most glamorous part of running a small business, but it does separate a good entrepreneur from a great one.

Cash flow, profit, money, goodwill, business and more, these terms always get into our minds just to remind us that we have to be serious and earn money in a better way. Despite this fact, our mind ignores the real phase that it’s not about being serious it’s about being dedicated yet motivated to run the business successfully.

3. Raising capital.

At pivotal moments in your business’ lifespan, you’ll need to raise funds so you can innovate and grow. While many people consider only the traditional bank-loan route, the modern entrepreneurial landscape offers alternative funding streams. You could consider equity or rewards, crowd sourcing options, incubators, loans or grants, angel investors or investment companies.

Not every option will be right for your business, so it pays to do some research to find out which is the best fit.

It’s easy to run the business, raise a business but to raise funds it’s also something where the actual challenge lies in this world. Your goodwill will be your final aspect which will decide you future of the business.

We will face such challenges every now an then but again, we have breathe, think, understand and listen to ourselves to solve it as every hurdle in this era so that it will take you higher and higher after jumping over it and not falling down.

LIFE OF AN ENTREPRENEUR

An entrepreneur running a successful business requires a lot of work everyday. Some days entrepreneur might feel like he/she won’t see the fruits of the labor they are putting in, but how is he/she an entrepreneur if he is not a motivator. We read such lines everyday somewhere to get ourselves pumped up but the question is how many of us really remember it in our daily tasks!

life-of-an-entrepreneue

1. Walt Disney: “All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”
You have to have the courage to follow your dreams because there will always be obstacles you have to face before you reach your dream.

2. 37 Signals: “Instead of freaking out about these constraints, embrace them. Let them guide you. Constraints drive innovation and force focus. Instead of trying to remove them, use them to your advantage.”

These people in our lives can be our well wishers, advisors, friends or role models but why is there no ‘myself’ in this? We must remind ourselves everyday that it is only us who are there behind the scenes of every trouble or success and they are the ropes of those people which helps us stand and remain stand in front of every charge. Being a women in India, waking up every morning yet working sounds common these days but the struggle is still there on the high command as an entrepreneur.

‘You think, you wish, you try, you face, you fall, again fall, you stand and then you win!’

Sounds very familiar for those who came forward after winning over it. Every person is rolling on this cycle of work and Kanika Tekriwal as well! The founder of ‘Jet Set Go’  – India’s first online marketplace for private jets and helicopters launched in 2014, by carrying her more than eight years of experience in the aviation industry, she realised the frustration of customers while dealing with charter brokers and operator due to the fact that because of sheer lack of transparency and non-availability of charter planes, customers pay astronomical amounts. It was from here, that the idea to develop JetSetGo started.

JetSetGo is fundamentally re-defining the private aviation business, by creating marketplaces that join the dots between charter customers and operators on one hand and service providers with operators on the other. For Kanika who has beaten cancer and is now entering unchartered territory, the flight to greater heights has just begun.

We have this story and many other stories like this in this world present which are redefining themselves everyday in front of people but it is about you that how you take stories like this among many of them to create yours. If there is a plan to start and to move forward you have to get ready for sleepless nights, to travel, to get your blood pressure stable and of course get crazy for you goal. It is all about you that how are you going to plan everything and even your nights to sleep. Its is necessary to get crazy and to think out of the box, necessary to start working and to plan every stop of yours to go up.

Kanika once said in an interview that you must choose people who are there to learn not to earn. Yes, we all have to remember such things not to be great just to meet great moments. To become a successful entrepreneur you have to have:
Ideas
Plans
Communication skills
Convincing power
Self motivated ability
Positive mind
Backups
and last but not least you always have to remind that ‘Who you are and what you can do the best that no one can? With these no problems will get vanish but surely they will always come with a ready solution to them.
