I am Najaam Lee, CEO, Creative Director and Stylist with the Vedic Image Group, a fashion imaging solution company specializing in styling and directing a clients' public image to styling many projects such as editorials, photoshoots, and appearances for special events.
I have always wanted to have my own company or be able to do my own thing from a kid. It has always been in the arts, from drawing, painting, to writing and directing events... I really did not see myself working for other people or companies so to speak. So, I just started with an idea, and then writing down steps to direct me in accomplishing it. I seek out people who may have more knowledge or skills in areas I'm unfamiliar with and get their advice. I have done a few different businesses, and what I have found that it really starts producing until at least 1 or 2 years into it. But thats my experience and being on this new path it may be different results for me and my new company.
If anyone is thinking about going into business for themself is you really have to love being by yourself, because in the beginning its very lonely, so you have to daily motivate yourself to get up and do. And secondly, I want you to give it your all. If you truly love your ideas and you can see yourself in it, then even if you get down to a penny in your name, keep going!!
