I started my path of creative entrepreneurship when I quit working on Wall Street over a decade ago and started a jewelry brand - Lucid New York. At first, Lucid was a collection of glass jewelry, made in my room on Ludlow street on the Lower East Side in New York City. To put my roommate at ease, I moved the propane tanks and my glass jewelry making operation to Urban Glass studio in Brooklyn. Shortly after I started working with metals, wire wrapping and crystals.
This is how Lucid New York brand started over twelve years ago. I now design the collections, get pieces made in New York, work with artisans from Thailand and import jewelry from Hong Kong. For years I used to exhibit the collections at trade shows in San Francisco, New York and Paris. Lucid has been coveted by editors of Vogue, Marie Claire, People StyleWatch. I got featured as a trade show expert in Entrepreneur magazine and other blogs and publications. Instead of focusing on growth in financial terms, I started prioritizing personal growth developing skills, which one day would make my plan of having a location independent lifestyle possible.
I became a life and business growth certified co-active coach. My first book- Your Creative Career will be published by Career Press in January 2018. I feel like I have a lot to share with my fellow entrepreneurs. I hope the business insights and secrets I write about will save creative entrepreneurs time. I hope you get inspired to start and run financially successful businesses on your own terms.
On my discovery path of an author and entrepreneur, I found my mission:
I write to save my readers time. My goal is to inspire fellow creatives to run successful businesses so that they have more time for creativity and growth.
I hope you join me in this adventurous ride of living creatively.
