"Stick with your original ideas, no matter what. Opening a business, especially a retail store, comes with a lot of decisions and with that a lot of distractions. I think this probably runs true for anyone and anything in life—stay true to who you are, even if it’s a challenge to get there or to make something happen. Sometimes original ideas are the best ones."-Kendi Skeen, blogger behind Kendi Everyday and owner of the Dallas boutique, Bloom.
"The best moment of my career so far was standing in front of the store with my husband at 2 am the night before we opened. I’ve never been so tired and so proud of something in my life."-Kendi Skeen of Kendi Everyday and owner of Bloom, a Dallas boutique.
"One thing I’ve learned is to listen to the advice people give you. Usually if I have a question, there is someone out there who has done this wrong or done it right and is more than willing to share with me. Advice is priceless in the world of entrepreneurship."-Kendi Skeen of Kendi Everyday and owner of the Dallas boutique, Bloom
