I am Bonnie Takhar, a seasoned fashion executive who held a number of high-ranking positions at companies including Donna Karan, Earl Jean, Jimmy Choo, Halston, Charlotte Olympia.

Through my own experiences navigating start ups and scale ups, I possess a deep understanding of the hurdles faced by designers and founders. Backed by a solid experience and background, I have the insight to foresee obstacles and the determination to overcome them.

Positive leadership can totally help calm those nerves and set you on the right track. Let's break it down together.

1. Feeling the Rejection or Jitters

You have poured your heart and soul into your product, and now you sweating bullets, wondering if anyone will even care. I get it. But with positive leadership, you can turn that fear around. Surround yourself with people who believe in your vision as much as you do. They will help you see rejection as a chance to improve.

2. Sea of Competition

Fashion and beauty are crowded spaces, no doubt about it. But you do not have to drown in the noise. Positive leadership is all about finding your unique voice and sticking to it. Be authentically you, and you will attract a tribe who loves what you are about.

3. Racing to Keep Up with Trends

Trends change faster than the wind. But with positive leadership, you can stay nimble and adapt. Surround yourself with people who love to learn and think outside the box. Together, you will stay ahead of the curve and true to yourself.

4. Balancing the Books without Breaking the Bank

Launching a fashion or beauty brand can put a serious dent in your wallet. It's scary, I know. But with positive leadership, you can be smart about your finances. Be transparent about where every cent goes, and get creative with your resources. Positive leadership can help support you through this process.

5. Reaching Beyond Your Wildest Dreams

You dream big, but take baby steps. Develop authentic and desirable products. Positive leadership is all about embracing diversity and inclusivity. Celebrate what makes each person unique, and watch your brand resonate with people.

Surround yourself with believers, stay true to your vision, and never stop learning and growing.
