I see a lot of new faces around here so I figured I will take a moment to introduce myself. Or re-introduce myself. I’m Sucheta. The owner of The Resplendent Crow. I started this company in my garage. I realized I was onto something when a client in Casper, Wyoming purchased a glossy gray dresser from me. Umm... I had to look up Casper WY on the map.
From my garage I eventually moved into a 10,000 sq ft shop with several guys working for me, including my (new) husband.
The bug of entrepreneurship is a genetic condition in my case & there’s no cure. It runs in the family. They say that a paycheck is one of the biggest addictions to overcome. I somehow managed to overcome mine in late 2016.
I was a divorced immigrant woman with absolutely no family in USA, my only fall back was my ex-husband. He said he would make sure I don’t end up homeless. The fear of ending up as a guest in his basement, as illogical as it may seem, is still there.
So if you think entrepreneurs are fearless people, then it’s far from the truth. We are scared as fuck, but we do what we do anyway. And I know you don’t come here for life advice, but I highly recommend if you are thinking, dreaming of doing something then JUST DO IT. You have one life, go after what you want. Chase it. Cut the parachute & take a leap.
