Today we’d like to introduce you to Greta Gasparian.
Thanks for sharing your story with us Greta. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
It all started after I had my son and felt out of place because of the overwhelming change that came with being a new mother. I went through postpartum depression and just felt so lost but so happy to have this incredible baby who lit up my life. After months of crying and feeling sorry for myself, I finally decided that it was time to get back on my feet and restrategize my life. I had no idea what was next but I knew it had to be something that brought back that fire and passion I lost and so desperately wanted back. I started watching inspiring and motivational documentaries, listening to podcasts and reading. I slowly started to get my mojo back and it felt amazing! I then started deep thinking about what I saw myself doing for the rest of my life. I knew I no longer wanted to be a beauty blogger because it just didn’t fulfill me like it used to and plus I had a new outlook on life and knew I wanted to impact women in a different way. So, I started an empowerment podcast where I brought inspiring women (like the co-founder of OPI) to share their success stories. Simultaneously, I started working on my brand, Plan Chicly. The fire inside me was starting to spark and I knew I was on the path I was meant to be on.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Life is never a smooth road, and same goes for business. You will fail and you will learn and move on. Its all about your perspective, don’t look at failure as failure look at it as a learning lesson and you’ll only become stronger and wiser. One of the biggest struggles I had, in the beginning, was finding the right factory, very difficult to do but you learn so much with every business interaction.
Plan Chicly – what should we know? What do you do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Plan Chicly is more than just a brand to us it’s a way of life. We are a brand dedicated to providing women with the tools for success in the form of chic stationery and organizational products. PC wants to encourage you to plan ahead, stay grateful, and most importantly set goals for yourself. We are known for our planners and fun fact we are the ONLY planner on the market with scratchproof packaging and covers. We are also the only planner that provides perforated tear outs for your weekly grocery list/meal planning. What sets us apart from other stationery and organizational brands is that we take a concept (i.e., planner) and we make it BETTER. We do extensive market research, we get our customers involved with what THEY want/need, and we create chic and functional products based on everyone’s feedback.
What is “success” or “successful” for you?
Success to me is setting a goal and accomplishing it. It’s taking my time to make something the best that it can be and for me, I’m never satisfied with the monetary gains of a product (although that’s always a perk) but rather how my products make my customer feel, how it aids them in achieving their own goals, and how it inspires them to never give up!
