‘Discipline and a Strong Work Ethic’ Underpins Fashion Woodlands Doyenne Theresa Roemer's Success
HOW DID YOU get to where you are today? My journey has been profoundly shaped by a blend of transformative experiences and formative influences. One of the central pillars of my journey has undoubtedly been the concept of “tough love” that I was fortunate enough to encounter during my early years. Raised in an environment where discipline and a strong work ethic were highly valued, I was instilled with principles that laid a solid foundation for my present success.
During my upbringing, I was entrusted with responsibilities that demanded unyielding dedication and diligence, such as the task of milking cows. These seemingly ordinary chores, however, carried invaluable life lessons. They not only taught me the virtue of persistence but also instilled within me a profound appreciation for the rewards of unwavering effort. It was through these early life experiences that I came to truly understand the essence of diligence and commitment, virtues that have since been instrumental in charting my path.
Whom do you credit? Through the application of “tough love,” my mother instilled invaluable life lessons in me. Also, the profound teachings of Zig Ziglar, whose inspirational messages have profoundly influenced my approach to motivation and personal development. Immersing myself in Zig Ziglar’s wisdom allowed me to grasp the transformative power of positivity, the significance of setting meaningful goals, and the art of helping others unlock their full potential. “You were born to win, but to be a winner, you must plan to win, prepare to win, and expect to win.” –Zig Ziglar
What lessons have you learned that might enlighten and inspire others? My journey has been marked by a multitude of invaluable lessons that I wholeheartedly believe can serve as a guiding light for individuals striving for success and personal growth. One fundamental truth I’ve come to embrace is the notion that nobody else is going to do the work for you. If you harbor aspirations of achieving greatness and realizing your full potential, it is imperative that you are willing to invest unwavering dedication, hard work, consistency, determination and unwavering focus into your pursuits.
What’s new in your life or work that you’re excited about? I’m delighted to unveil a series of exciting initiatives that have recently become a focal point of my life and professional journey. Foremost among them is the launch of “Houston Style Icons,” an innovative virtual competition that brings together the crème de la crème of Houston, Texas’ most stylish individuals. This project not only celebrates the diversity of personal fashion but also serves as a platform to recognize and honor the creative expression that resides within our community.
Furthermore, I am eagerly anticipating the annual “Fashion Woodlands” event, meticulously curated by yours truly, set to take place this November. This event promises to be a veritable extravaganza, a convergence of fashion aficionados, trendsetters and industry professionals alike. It represents an opportunity to celebrate the artistry and evolution of fashion while fostering a sense of community and collaboration among those who share a passion for the industry.
In addition to these engaging projects, I’m currently in the midst of crafting my fourth book. Writing has long been a source of personal fulfillment and a means of imparting knowledge and inspiration to others. This forthcoming literary endeavor symbolizes my continued commitment to sharing valuable insights, experiences and motivation with a broader audience.
I’m excited to announce the creation of my own exclusive private community called “The Vault,” bringing together a collective of like-minded individuals who desire notable success in their respective fields. This community serves as a nexus for networking, collaboration and mutual support, providing a fertile ground for the exchange of ideas and the cultivation of personal and professional growth.
