I stop writing from under the blanket

parenting blog

To explain everything to you, I have to start from the beginning.

 

I've always known that I want to run my own business. I also knew that I had to earn the money to start it myself. This is why, after going to Paris for six months, instead of devoting myself to full Erasmus fun, I found a job as an au-pair, with a nice salary and my own room with a bathroom in the attic of a villa in the richest, XNUMXth arrondissement of Paris. For the whole half a year I did not even try to buy a perfume or shoes, I ate only one real French pancake (it smelled so much that I baked it myself), and I put all the money I earned for my future, which I had always believed in.

 

15 June 2007 - at the age of 22, after almost two years of preparation, I set up my own company. Since then, so much has changed, and my career has developed in several directions.

 

First, in 2007, there was a Wedding Portal PobieramySię - here I took my first business steps, renovated and rented the first office in the basement, proudly called basement by my family, hired my first people, achieved my first successes and made my first mistakes. No, there were also failures. Today, after almost 10 years, I know that it is what I owe to DownloadSia, a lot of wonderful contacts, a solid portion of business and interpersonal knowledge, as well as a springboard for further activities. What's more, PobieramySię is on the market to this day and it is doing very well, and I still make sure that it does not fall out of this market, funding it with facelifts and new functionalities.

 

About in 2010 I decided that enough sitting behind the computer screen and it was high time to leave my comfort zone built behind the computer screen and meeting with clients whose dreams of a wonderful wedding I began to fulfill under the brand Wedding Studios. Working as a Wedding Consultant has given me the most positive emotions and experiences in my life, as well as true friendships, which is not easy in business.

 

At the peak of my earning, in May in 2012, in secret from the whole world and my husband, I published first blog post From under the blanket. It was after I was very involved for two years on the Deccoria portal, where I created galleries of my interiors and inspirations, around which a large group of recipients gathered. I wanted to collect them in one place, and that's how this blog was created. And although the name Spod kocyka is associated today primarily with "parenting", which I became a part of only over 2 years later, its genesis is completely different. In my busy world, I loved to find a moment for myself in the evening, drink my favorite tea, sit with my laptop under a warm blanket and write ... literally from under the blanket.

 

The next step was together with my husband creating a business network in 2015 - the Wedding Factory franchise network, thanks to which we cover almost all of Poland today. See for yourself what a wonderful team we are able to create. And mutual support, common priorities make our brand grow stronger every day.

 

At the very beginning of 2016 year I made my next business dream come true - I created Wedding Consultant Academy, where I prepare future Wedding Consultants for the profession using business courses and trainings, and all this is recommended by the Polish Association of Wedding Consultants.

 

Today, this blog is almost 5 years oldand I know it's high time for another change. I would like to continue to combine everything I do on a daily basis, i.e. my family, home, taking care of health, beauty and myself, my own, broadly understood "business", in which there is room for personal development, career and home, personal happiness and fulfillment.

 

Maintaining the recognition of several brands is not easy, so I decided to clip them with what they have in common, so my name and surname and from today welcome to the blog AgnieszkaKudela.pl. Yes, it is here that only my address has changed, I stay. Although different every day, and I owe it to you and the fact that you are giving me what you have the most precious - your time you spend here. I really appreciate it and I thank you for it with all my heart.

 

Like any change, this one also brings with it anxiety, and this feeling certainly accompanies me today. No doubt I'm saying goodbye today to a piece of something that I have been creating for 1667 days. However, I believe that at any moment what I feel will turn into excitement and will only drive me positively to further action.

 

So that we can be closer, I invite you to subscribe to mine newsletter.

    Hello!
    I came to you only now, to Agnieszka Kudela, and reading this post I got to know your story. I admire you very much! I just started a blog myself, and we have a plan with my friends to set up a wedding portal. I am fresh with this topic because I recently got married. We want to create something of my own, I hope you don't get it wrong because of going to

    Agnieszka, congratulations with all my heart that you are consistently fulfilling your plans and dreams. It is so simple and very difficult at the same time, because we usually think what would happen if we do nothing in this direction to make these plans come true. Most often, we simply do not believe that we will succeed, we do not have the courage to start and we prefer to warm a full-time place at someone because it is easier and more convenient. And then after years we still feel unsatisfied. I have a certain plan for my own business, but for now I have a little daughter and I have to save my plans a little later. However, I believe that maternity leave is a time when you can refine your plans and put your thoughts in place, and then you can move a full pair.

      Monika, thank you very much for your words. It's true - maternity can be used sensational in terms of planning your career - it was on maternity that I thought about the development of Wytwórnia Ślubów into a franchise network and the Wedding Consultant Academy, after a small rebranding of the blog and I still do not know what a dream is 😉 and I keep my fingers crossed for you - a dream and plan so when it comes to action you know you have the best plan. And this is one that is very flexible 😉

    Congratulations! You can see from your achievements that there is no room for chance, everything is well planned and implemented. I always admire people who are good at setting and achieving goals. Today we have difficult times for business - it is all the more nice to look at a Young Woman who exudes positive energy, perseverance and can boast of her success :). Keep it up! I believe there are still many goals to be achieved before you. It will be nice for me to follow your successes via blog 🙂

    I'm so proud of you! You impressed me that at such a young age you had such clearly defined priorities!
    I knew you were not giving up your blog, I was expecting content related to the name change 🙂

      Don't you feel sorry for these pancakes? 😉 I will definitely go back and eat as much as I can 😉

    Impressive - I admire you for your determination and persistence. What impresses me the most, however, is how you take care of details when doing your duties and activities. When I look at your photos, read your blog, look at your Facebook profile - everything is so beautiful and aesthetic. I love it about you.

      Gosia, thank you for the wonderful words. I love to take care of the details, but I do it calmly when I can. I assume that the house is for living, and the office is for work, so I'm certainly not crazy about it anymore, I have more interesting time eaters 😉 a good photo frame is doing its job 😉

    I would like to have as much strength as you because at the age of 26 I am opening a company. Good luck and it's nice that you stay.

    • 01.12.2016

      Well, I keep my fingers crossed my love! Be sure to let me know how it goes, I'm very curious. And what industry?

    • 01.12.2016

      Language ☺

    • 01.12.2016

      Cool! Working with the language is at a great price, and the financial barrier to entering the market does not deter you, I keep my fingers crossed for you, find your niche and act!

    Beautiful story. It shows that it is worth following your dreams consistently. This post gave me some hope that someday I will write my story and the situation in which I am can be my "springboard" if I use it well. Thank you and best regards Asia B.

      Honey, it's a must! I have turned the greatest hardships and greatest dramas in my life into springboards for happiness, everything is for something and when anything unpleasant happens to me in my life, I tell myself - no one sees the whole picture. Certainly this is the best situation that can be, although usually I do not understand it completely, I put myself into God's hands and I trust that this is how it should be. It helps soothe any pain and live on, fight for yourself, for love, for health, for good. What I wish you Asia.
