"I learned a lot from Victoria, she has experience and she knows all the processes very well and, once she has a lot of experience, she shares it," says Alexandra Goleac, one of the employees in the workshop in Tighina (Bender).
With investments in quality, tomorrow's success starts today
In her nearly 20 years in the textile business, Victoria has come to understand that she has to deliver quality, and a personal signature to her products. So, this taught her to pass on all her knowledge about the workshop processes to all employees. She does not see herself in other fields. If she were to start over, she would open a workshop as well.
Even the pandemic did not affect her business too much, because she adapted quite quickly to the remote work mode.
"We can design clothes remotely. It was a time when I worked more time with designers in Moscow, I developed patterns, models and even a few collections per year. Based on this collaboration, I have also gained experience in working remotely.”
Mentoring in business is like a shield
As Victoria works in a creative field, all these years she has always been looking for growth and learning opportunities. Thus, in 2021, Victoria attended BusinessUP courses.
"After the training courses, you naturally start to act differently, you know the law, you know how to work correctly with people, to engage with customers, with staff, to keep some accounting records and gradually to acquire knowledge. Such mentoring is absolutely necessary," mentions Victoria.
For now, the workshop services are only available to residents on both banks of the Nistru river, but Victoria wants to expand her orders area to both the West and the East.
