I was introduced to the optical industry in 2017; without any prior knowledge of this side of eye care business I fell in love after a few weeks of working at an independant optical retailer office. I never expected to grow so passionate about Eyewear and Eye Care and I think part of the reason is because I was not aware of the many benefits this industry has to offer. I want to make it my goal to show all the opportunities and positive outcomes that come with being a part of the optical world.
“Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right” -Henry Ford
It’s all about the mindset. You are capable of achieving greatness, just go for it. I remember thinking I will be stuck at a minimum wage job until I graduate from my four year bachelor degree program only to be in a field that I didn’t have my heart set on. Why? Because it’s what I’ve been told to do my whole life and it was “the right path to take”. I was given an amazing opportunity to work at an independent optical retailer with an amazing lady boss/mentor who helped me realize that if you do what you’re passionate about, you develop an irresistible drive to learn more about that field and your dedication, devotion and excitement becomes contagious.
