How old were you when you started and where did your idea come from?:
I was 13 years old when I started my business: Sydney Day Design. I have always been a creative artsy person, and in the summer of 2017 I started experimenting with my lettering skills. When my skills grew and I improved, I decided to start Sydney Day Design!
What was the biggest mistake you made and what did you learn from it?:
The biggest mistake I have make while getting my business started was when I was first starting. I was very excited about my new business and dove straight in. I designed like crazy and released cards that I ended up not liking. I prioritized timing over quality. I have learned from my mistake, and now spend lots of time carefully crafting each design I sell!
What are your future plans for the business?:
I would love to continue presenting myself to the public by attending business fairs, and growing the social following for my business. In the future I would love to start having my designs in small shops around DC!
Any advice for other girls starting a business?:
Be you! A lot of people will tell you what you can and can't do. Don't let this blind you from who you are, and the ideas and creativity behind your business. Work hard and have fun! Hard work ethics are crucial in having a business. With determination and a drive to do well, your business will do well! With all of this said, don't forget to have fun along the way. Keep a positive attitude, and remember: If you stay strong during setbacks, you will come back stronger than ever!
