Interview with Bold Journey: Resilience, Insights and Wisdom

Interview with Bold Journey: Resilience, Insights and Wisdom

Ce Ce, we’re thrilled to have you sharing your thoughts and lessons with our community. So, for folks who are at a stage in their life or career where they are trying to be more resilient, can you share where you get your resilience from?
Ah resilience, it’s an essential characteristic and also a practice! My mother always emphasized “stick to it-ness” when I was a kid, and she meant that one needs to “stick to it” in order to see results. This discussion came up when I was doing dance as a kid, and faced challenges with learning techniques and routines. Also this came up with studying for exams and writing college essays. So early memories of developing this quality laid the ground for this in my professional and entrepreneurial career. When faced with uncertainly, I make lists of previous challenges I overcame in the past. And the helps me remember how much power I have to “stick to it”, and what rewards have results because of this.

What Amy Tan says about Babos Shoes

What Amy Tan says about Babos Shoes

When Amy Tan, author of best seller The Joy Luck Club writes an review of Babos: 

These were instantly comfortable the first time I put them on. A friend said that in the slipper style , the shoes looks very elegant. The soft leather and bottom of the shoe makes it great for long walks. And the lightness of the shoe makes them ideal for packing because space in carry-on only luggage is limited. In short, these shoes with its convertible styles are my choice for an upcoming stay in NYC and Paris. They’ll be perfect for a dressy reception and dinner, long 6 - 10 mile walks across the city and through parks, and informal occasions in casual clothes.

Tips for starting your own shoe business

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. START: Just start! Try putting your product or service “out there” and learn from the reaction.
  2. RUN: Learn from your sales- why did they purchase, what appealed to them and how can you replicate that?
  3. GROW: invest in what can generate more revenue, be it products or systems. Keep your brain fresh to find new opportunists, and delegate or outsource tasks that take you away from that mindset.
