Changing my mind so much is something I’ve become quite accustomed to in the last few years. It started with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) that I received after a terrible accident. As a result, I had to completely reassess what I wanted to do with my life. Although it was a difficult decision, I eventually decided to pursue a career on the web and make a store involving watches and jewelry.
When I first started exploring this new field, I was amazed to see the range of options available to choose from. I could focus on creating one-of-a-kind store of pieces that are truly unique, or could become a specialist in evaluating and selling pre-owned luxury watches. Either way, I was excited to get started.
Of course, I had some reservations as well. After all, the watch and jewelry industry is very competitive and the stakes can be high. But I was confident that with hard work and dedication, I could build a successful ecommerce store in this field.
So, after researching and planning, finally decided to take the leap. Enrolled in a class on website building as well as a little about watchmaking and jewelry design. I started looking at unique jewelry and also checking out vintage watches. I also began networking with other industry professionals and exploring the market. As I learned more about the craft and the business side of things, I felt myself getting more and more excited.
Over time, I’ve become very educated in my field. And although I still have a lot to learn, I’m proud to say that I’ve built a semi-successful business in watch and jewelry sales. Even today, my passion for this craft only continues to grow.
Ultimately, I’m glad that I made the decision to pursue this career, despite the challenges I faced along the way. It has been incredibly rewarding and empowering to see how far I’ve come. With every new site I create and every new client I come into contact with, I’m reminded that I can do anything I put my mind to. And that thought is the best feeling of all.
