Challenges as you grow in your career will definitely come. One way I faced adversity was to listen to what the need was from my clients and use that as a tool to create my other business CHIKK University, which is an accessory and trend forecast platform where fashionpreneurs, buyers and boutique owners can learn buying basics and gain valuable trend forecasting knowledge to grow and brand their businesses. Retail Consulting services are also offered.
