Owner of Bliss Skateboard Shop
What inspired you to enter and pursue this field?
I didn't want to live with the regret of not trying to on a skateboard shop
How did you come to be in this position?
I dabbled with the idea of owning a shop. I crunched some numbers to see how much it would cost and then I started looking at spaces to rent. I cam across the on I have now and didn't hesitate to jump at the opportunity.
What advice would you give young women looking to enter your current line of work?
In algebra we solve for X. X is usually an unknown variable. Don't let not knowing what it could be scare you from figuring out what it actually is. Solve for X. Seek the knowledge, use the many resources you have around you and plan your exaction and then go for it. And even if you fall its not failure if you learn from it.
Skate your passion! The thing about skateboarding is that we (skateboarders) know that learning a new trick wont be easy, but we try, try and try again until we get it exactly how we want it. You gotta do that too. Fall down, get up, land it, learn it, love it.
