I finally took the leap...


September 01, 2016

So I finally took the leap to be business owners…now what? I’d be lying if I said I wasn't excited, nervous, and scared all at the same time. I have no experience running an e-commerce store but I both am willing to do what it takes to learn the business. Let me give you a little background of who I am , how Bold Ascension came to life, and what my vision for Bold Ascension is.

I am a single mother to four amazing children, a business owner, a graduate student for a Masters of Social Work, a US Army Solider and social justice ally. I am a multi-passionate entrepreneur who has embraced my originality and created Bold Ascension. Ascension is the act of rising to a higher level. Bold Ascension embodies that, I’ve always risen above in my own loud and bold way. One of my icons said it best: I stay true to myself and my style, and I am always pushing myself to be aware of that and be original. -Aaliyah

I recently moved back to California after separating from my husband of 12 years. Coming back to California with four children was very difficult. This new chapter really made me see that I definitely was not where I thought I would be at this point in my life. What happened next did not happen by chance, I do not believe in coincidences. Late last year I went to a seminar and met Carlos Marquez who is a successful entrepreneur, motivator and radio personality - that is revolutionizing and holding the hand of the Hispanic community, teaching them to develop skills that will help them achieve their goals and financial success. I won tickets to his warehouse event in which he takes participants on a corporate tour and introduces them to importers and direct distributors. To be honest I had NO desire to be in the fashion industry but after this event I was blown away by the potential. I decided to take a step into taking my destiny into my own hands. I knew that if I did nothing about my current situation nothing would change.

Bold Ascension is the result of everything aligning perfectly; now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying this decision has been easy but nothing worth having comes easy. I am dedicated to my commitment and am willing to stop at nothing to make it successful. My vision for Bold Ascension is to create a successful women’s accessory business that will be used as a platform to empower other women and give back to my community. Even though Bold Ascension has just launched, I want to invite you all to join me through this journey. Hopefully I can give you some insight about buying merchandise, creating a blog, activating your website but most importantly to encourage you to take a step toward your dreams. This is all very overwhelming but I will not be easily discouraged. -Be Bold, Be Different.
