I need to focus on the things I enjoy instead of worrying about recognition and changing the world at the moment.
Sounds like your therapist has been reading the advice Psychlinks members have been telling you all along.....or maybe we're all trying the same thing!
I think if you intend to make progress in re-orienting your thinking, you will have to start believing the advice of the people you consult.
starting my own fashion business
Whatever you intend doing, whether it's design, production, marketing, sales, distribution, you need to have solid business training. A dream to start a new business venture is not enough, and can set you up for failure, unless you have a business plan that can withstand scrutiny by your bank manager or an accountant that you need to be working with you.
You need to consider financing, cash flow, overhead and inventory costs.
Do you have the capital required for such an enterprise? Do you have a five year business plan, which is a basic requirement for anyone looking for start up capital or financing, not to mention a sound market study that identifies your potential client base.
If you are not prepared to provide your bank manager with a business plan, then I suggest you get a job as an employee in your chosen field, learn the market build up some equity and do some market research and develop a business plan.
