Perfume Connoisseur & Successful Businesswoman Addresses CSU Students

PRLogOct. 23, 2013CHARLESTON, S.C.For the very first time, CEO of Charleston Girl LLC, Kelly Gaskins, spoke to Charleston Southern University students Tuesday inside the Whitfield Christian Leadership Building.

Gaskins shared her personal tips for business success and encouraged students that, “if you can dream it, with a little work any dream can become a reality.”

“I also talked to students about how I conceived the idea for my company, events in my life that contributed toward taking the “plunge” into business, the difficulties and rewards of the startup execution, and my perspective after operating for some period of time,” said Gaskins

Statistics show that first-time business ventures fail, unfortunately.  Gaskins’ perfume has not been one of them, and she wants the same success for future business leaders of the lowcountry, also.

“It is important for young people interested in business to be exposed to others who have taken the leap into small business already and are succeeding,” said Gaskins.  “Starting a business can be intimidating and to have support and encouragement to foster that initiative can be pivotal in actually following through with a start-up idea. I also think it is important for me to give back to the community that has supported my business.”

Gaskins hopes her words leave students at CSU with a lasting impression and something they can later apply to their own business ventures.

“I hope students recognize that starting a business is a lot of hard work. However, if they are willing to work hard, their business can be a success.”
