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.

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.

Shout Out LA introduces Ce Ce Chin on Vision Quest shoes

Hi Ce Ce, do you disagree with some advice that is more or less universally accepted?
I don’t believe one needs to write a business plan in the traditional sense. Unless someone, an investor perhaps, has asked for one.
