Life & Career Milestones

My path in life has been direct

  • 1.

    Growing up, her mother was her role model, but her mother was also a very fearful person.

  • 2.

    As a result, Trelise developed a fear of criticism and of putting herself out there.

  • 3.

    Even when she worked up the courage to open her own shop, she spent the whole night before crying in fear.

  • 4.

    Turns out, she had nothing to be worried about-the next day, she had lines stretching outside of her shop.

  • 5.

    The turnover she'd hoped to do in a week, she did on her first day, and the turnover she'd hoped to do in a month was done in that first week.

  • 6.

    Since then, the craziness just hasn't stopped; Trelise says she's loved it and hated it.

  • 7.

    Throughout her career, she's felt fear and courage living closely side by side, but she pushes herself to do things, even if she's afraid.

  • 8.

    Says that getting up every day takes courage, but your true fear should be of becoming someone who never takes action.
