“Then the Lord said to me, ‘Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it.’” -Habakkuk 2:2✨
DALLAS — The new year helps to bring a sense of a fresh start when it comes to dreams and goals. One Dallas entrepreneur decided to bring nearly 50 women of different backgrounds and walks of life together in an effort to motivate them to pursue their dreams for the year 2020.
Kierra Anderson, founder and creator of MajorKee’s Boutique, says the inspiration for the Glitter and Goals Vision Board Party was to “encourage others to be an inspiration by sharing their accomplishments (glitter) and goals. The event was also intended to help guide people in creating a vision board that would actually work for them.”
When asked about the benefits of creating a vision board, Kierra believes that the tool provides a clear idea of the things that you want to see come into fruition throughout the year.
“It helps people to understand what their goals and aspirations actually are. It is a constant reminder of the things that you want to happen in the year when it is hung up somewhere that you can see daily,” she said.
Kierra believes that having a vision board has helped her when it comes to accomplishing her goals and staying accountable of the goals that she’s set for the year.
“It also helps me to see what is all on my plate for the year. Sometimes it is hard to stick to your goals when you have too many goals in the way of the ultimate goal. Seeing all of my goals on one board has helped me prioritize them based on the needs of my life,” she reveals.
As far as her 2020 is concerned, the young entrepreneur is anticipating lots of success, fun, and enriching experiences.
“I have a lot of things planned this year. Some of those things include traveling to China, graduating with my masters and my business being involved in different events. Apart from all of the exciting things I have planned, I would like to see myself become healthier, get a better job, rebrand and grow my business,” she says.
And while planning an event of this magnitude can sometimes be challenging and stressful, Kierra says it was actually “the easiest thing I’ve ever had to do on my own in a while.”
“I enjoyed gathering ideas and planning for the event. It was a challenge selling tickets and reaching my goal number at the time I wanted my tickets sold. However, through this experience, I was able to gain the necessary skills for planning an event and different marketing strategies for selling tickets,” she says.
Any advice to other young, business-minded individuals like herself?
“My advice would be to get started, stay encouraged and to not give up. I started my business with no plan or idea on how it would be profitable. As time went on, I was able to find my passion in entrepreneurship. I love the idea of business and anything that goes into. As I started developing my brand, new doors and opportunities opened for me. So my advice would be to not sit on any idea that you may have. Get started because you never know what it may develop into. Once you get started, stay encouraged because there will be plenty of things that will discourage and make you want to give up. It will be a challenge at first but as you keep going, things will get easier. Stay encouraged, don’t give up, and just get started!”
