Prim and Proper Boutique and Nude Dolly are more than just my full time job; it's my life. I am the sole owner and operator, and sometimes that comes with its challenges. Luckily I am single so I am able to devote 100% of my time to my business and my customers. Being able to financially support myself from this business is a dream come true. It definitely fits my personality to be able to work from home and for myself. Sometimes working for yourself can be difficult because you have to be disciplined and very structured in order to succeed. Time management is also very crucial. When working, I spend about 10% of my time answering customer emails, 10% on packaging and shipping, 75% on making the products, and 5% on miscellaneous things that need to get done. One of my biggest challenges is probably getting people to understand this is a full time job. Most people think I'm just sitting in my house doing arts and crafts, but really there is much more to it. Majority of people have a job where they are responsible to fulfill a single role, but I have to perform ALL roles of a company, just on a smaller scale. i.e. marketing, sales, customer service, shipping, inventory, web design, product design, R & D, etc. And like other self employed people, the stress of needing your company to succeed so you can pay for health insurance and contribute to your retirement can sometimes weigh heavy on me. However, I believe my determination and drive will continue to grow the success of my shop.
I would never be where I am today without my mom. Sadly she passed from cancer when I was 24 and never got the opportunity to see my business, but I owe her everything. In 1987 she adopted me from S Korea and raised me in San Jose, California. In that alone, I am so lucky and grateful. She sent me to the best private schools in the Bay Area and opened every door she could for me. My mom was a high school teacher and could sometimes be overly strict, but as I get older I am pretty pleased with how I was raised. She taught me to treat others the way I want to be treated, which is also a rule I live by when conducting business. I make sure to treat customers exactly the way I would expect to be treated as one. Even when I get the more difficult requests from customers, I make sure to treat them with respect. Every time she would drop me off at a friend's house while I was growing up she would say "Mind your Ps and Qs". She said it so much to me that I even opened my 4th Etsy shop called Mind Your Tees and Qs, where I sell funny shirts (now called Nude Dolly- www.NudeDolly.Etsy.com
) . I've been through a lot at a young age and have only been able to survive and endure the chaos because of how I was raised and the adult my mom molded me in to becoming. I wish she was here to see the person I have become because I know she would be so proud of my little business and its success.
