3 years ago I went to @qvc for the first time to promote my cookbook. I LOVED it! It was the perfect combination of great product and the ability to chat with people while on camera (my spiritual gifting). That night, after my segment I took myself to a fancy dinner at the local Outback and I made myself a promise... I’d be back on QVC someday, and it would be with my own line. On the plane ride home, in a center seat in coach, I mapped out my plan. It was the first time I wrote down “I have a bestselling line on QVC” in my daily journal (because I always write my goals AS IF they’ve already happened) but not the last. I’ve written that sentence hundreds of times in the last three years. I wrote it not knowing how. I wrote it not knowing what. I kept writing it everyday as a reminder of the finish line I didn’t know how to reach.
Guys, today I got to see the prototypes for MY APPAREL LINE AT QVC!!! 3 years of dreaming, 3 years of work, 3 years of sending emails and meeting with vendors and trying to get in through the front door, then the side door, then the window! 3 years of hearing no —or worse— hearing nothing. And now we’re here!
Y’all are going to love... LOVE these clothes! We literally started with samples from my own closet and built from scratch. They’re stylish and easy to wear and come in EVERY size! I’m so tickled I could burst!
Never, EVER let someone tell you what you can achieve. Never, EVER take no for an answer. Work hard. Be humble. Believe in your freaking self! I’m not here because I’m special. I’m not here because I had connections or money or education. I’m here because I never give up. I’m here because I don’t take no for an answer. I’m here because my life motto is, “Be so good they can’t ignore you.” So every time I couldn’t get a meeting or a call back I wasn’t discouraged, I just took it as a sign that I wasn’t ready. I put my head down and went back to work.
God is good. So is the apparel team at QVC. I can’t wait to show you what they’re both helping me build. 🎥 Watch the full video in my stories. #RachelHollisxQVC #QVC
