There is a huge amount of changes that people are fighting to be made in the Scottish (and global) industry. People are talking about creating groups and teams that can “regenerate” the industry, especially that of fashion.
What concerns me about this is the lack of real identity to it or the background checks that should be done to prevent collapse. In an age where its incredibly easy to verify someones background through something as simple as Facebook, which many companies are now doing, I find it interesting and have fell for it myself on the surface, people still lie about their CV.
Now if you want to question the validity of my travels, my work and my business you are more than welcome because I can provide evidence that will verify it for you.
So thats simple then.
If you are dealing with people who talk endlessly about what they have done and where they have been and there work is not close the standard you would expect here’s the thing you can cross check and ask for verification.
Overselling a skill is not smart and shows a lack of thought into your business. If you want to improve your work and get into better realms EARN your craft, if you do not have the skill earn them don’t lie about them and think you won’t get caught.
To open the door to better business you just need to earn it, that will take time, marketing and earned skill nothing comes overnight.
