Thanks to my Faculty !
IIIrd year , an extra class ,the perfect lesson !! The best lesson I could have learnt , just before passing out.
While it is a good thing to be proactive and learn about new things while you are in college, it’s an even better idea if you do not have to re-invent the wheel everytime you start ‘something new’ by your norms.Every time you think of starting something new , you put yourself out there , thinking that you are starting from the scratch. But infact , almost everything in the world has been done by so many people , already. All you need to do is find a method , a mentor , a video , a course to understand the process and apply.
FABRIC SWATCHES WITH VARIOUS PROCESSES FOR MAKING A COLLETION (Photo ref : Pexels)
Unlike many , I had the dream of starting my own Bridal label since my college days. But what did I know about it ? Umm… probably the dresses & embellishments ! And oh yes , how beautifully they looked !!
But did I know practically about what fabrics would be good for aari work and what colour combinations would look great on a client’s colour palette? Or for that matter did I even know about the sampling process first before putting it into production Did I know about fabrics being tested for Quality assurance and in-line checkings ? Or that 3rd party inspection without which the delivery is unlikely !
WHAT THE HECK .. NO !!!
💫Get experience , atleast a course,an internship, a couple of years at least in the sector you want go start your own business.
💫Learn . Learn.Learn with each experience. and then apply and earn exponentially ! (without discovering Everything on your own)
💫Even if you start from scratch a couple of years later, you won’t be starting with a ZERO.You will be starting with EXPERIENCE !
💫Thanks to your experience of having worked under someone already, you’ll make LESSER MISTAKES.
Making mistakes on others experience is nothing but learning from people who are already out there, working on it. When you get into an environment be it a logo making company , a marketing firm , a manufacturing sector or a woven label printing company , starting on your own may seem daunting.
But when you have already taken a couple of years experience into the process , you don’t become perfect in the segment (it takes years to become perfect in a particular field) , you get to know what happens in the whole process. All things that constitute the process , work handling , people handling techniques , the formula & costing of creating a product , markting and commerciality. It all makes sense , ones you have witnessed these processes first-hand on someone else’s investment.
These are some of the things ,you as a fresher in your own business with no prior experience , will fail to acknowledge and hence won’t even apply.
