One of the best lessons I have learned while growing my business has been the power of relationships and collaborations. It started when I began my journey as an entrepreneur and was just hungry for resources that could help me grow my business. But this hunt for resources soon became a journey of fostering relationships with other women entrepreneurs in my community who were not only willing to help me, but also support my business.
Then enter Instagram and the love, support, and business that I have received from this platform has been incredible. And it hasn’t just been me, there many women making connections every day and helping each other and pushing each other forward like these two ladies, Sahira from Sahira Jewelry Designs and Sophia from Born2Dress.
This fun pair connected on Instagram when Sophia was looking to expand her online clothing boutique to include jewelry that would complement her brand. She found Sahira's exquisite line of handmade jewelry and the rest is history. The two hit it off and since then have opened their own gorgeous boutique in Wellington, FL.
They both felt Wellington was missing a place where women could shop for fashion-forward jewelry and clothing. They wanted women to have a place to escape for a few hours and feel like they were shopping in their friend's closet. But most of all they wanted to bring a personalized shopping experience for their clients.
When collaborating, Sahira and Sohia truly believe that communication and aligned goals are the key to a successful partnership. Although their businesses are still managed separately, they function together a team supporting each other's endeavors and value each other's opinions.
So, if you have been thinking about collaborating with someone - go for it - reach out and start fostering those relationships. You never know what amazing opportunities could be waiting for you on the other side!
