How We Came Up With Our Boutique
It seems that weekends are the only times I got to breathe in fresh air and breathe out stress, which is why I usually have long lists for to-do’s during weekends. Most of us work in a very stressful kind of job that we tend to relax less and work more. Especially if you work in a routine type of job, going home is, somewhat, the only motivation you got to speed up your work. Usually, people work for five days every week. Mondays have the most hates from people and Fridays are the most awaited day. When work becomes hectic, I spend less time with my family. In fact, I envy my sister for being available always for her family. She can bring her kids to school and even fetch them after. Like me, she works, but not as an employee, but a business owner. Right now, her business is one of the most known clothing boutiques in Atlanta. Whenever I get longer free time, I often bring my kids in her store, but I don’t stay long as her boutique get heavier and heavier from time to time.
Since we were kids, we lived and stayed in Atlanta until we had families on our own. It has always been our dream to make business together, but since she got married earlier, she has to focus on different things while I concentrated on my studies. My father, several years ago, owned a few furniture boutiques in Atlanta GA, but when he was struck by stroke, we had to sell all those shops in order to sustain all medical assistance that he needed at that time.
He stayed in the intensive care unit until he decided to give up after almost four months. I was a fresh graduate at that time, with nowhere to go, but I realized that I needed to support my mother, so my sister and I decided to try our best to make business. We got all our savings combined and eventually, built up a boutique in town. When it was doing well for a couple of months, I managed to find a new job and left the boutique for my sister. Business is a risk-taking activity that we all get the opportunity to experience, in one or another, but it is always up to us if we’re going to take it.
