Can you imagine waking up one day and your dream career, your passion, your everything, is gone? Not just gone, but being used against you, your designs sold while you see no dime. This nightmare is the harsh reality faced by Cheval, a former wedding dress designer who had her world turned upside down.
Today, she is truly “a girl you used to know” going by her new name, Cheval, a symbol of her reinvention. Her story proves to be incredibly impressive and full of new lessons learned. If you haven’t already, be sure to tune in to our exclusive sit-down with Cheval.
Here are Cheval’s key takeaways, inspired by her personal journey:
- Slay the Imposter: Celebrate your magic, the clients you empower, the moments you turn from mood boards into dazzling realities. Stop comparing, focus on your own path, and remember, your unique vision is what makes you stand out.
- Set Boundaries: Learn to say “no” not as rejection, but as a powerful redirection. No to energy-draining clients, yes to collaborations that spark creative fireworks. Protect your boundaries, fuel your creativity, and say “hell yes!” to fulfilling moments.
- Embrace the Stumbles: We all have wedding-day hiccups! Learn from your missteps, share openly, and embrace vulnerability. Every setback is a stepping stone, an opportunity to grow and adapt.
- Build Your Village: No planner thrives in isolation. Surround yourself with mentors, colleagues, and fellow dream-weavers who believe in your potential. Share your struggles, celebrate victories, and remember, the joy of planning is amplified by those who understand your magic.
Cheval’s story is one of reclaiming your creative fire, setting boundaries, and embracing the power of community. We can’t wait to see what she does next!
