inspired by women. Created by women.

I started Mercury Clothiers because of a lack of inspired options for professional women at a price point below high end designers. I'd never considered myself an entrepreneur, but the process of researching and starting a business has been an empowering and incredible experience.

I've met amazing women who are in the fashion, design, and business worlds — and discovered so many more who have trailblazed paths for female entrepreneurs. I'm excited to share my journey and the stories of many inspiring women with you — right here.

Earning Potential: Cross Train Yourself and Others

Employers want people who are eager to learn how the business works. In order to do that, you must be apt to learning other positions as well as teach yours. You will create value by improving the workforce. 

Earning Potential: Possess the Ability to Work with Difficult People

No matter the industry, you will find difficult people everywhere. You need to know how to work with them and remain efficient. If they work for you, you will need to be able to motivate them.  

Earning Potential: Be Proactive

Recognize what needs to be and do it. Do not wait to be told what to do. Employers appreciate proactivity, especially if it is something they have missed themselves. 

Earning Potential: Be Authentic, Not Perfect

Authenticity is important to building work relationships. Employers do not expect perfection. They do expect you to be genuine and build trust. 

Earning Potential: Know the Big Picture

Keep your eye on the big picture. When you understand why you are doing what you are doing, it is easier to recognize opportunities for improvement. And when you know how your work impacts others, you create value by being able to adjust your work to meet the ultimate goal.   

Earning Potential: Positive Attitude

Having a positive attitude is a basic value-adder. Do not complain when things go wrong. Focus on the positive and help others to do so too. 

Earning Potential: Be a Problem Solver

When problems arise, be the one who thinks of solutions rather than sulk in the corner. Employers want people who come up with feasible solutions. When you present them, remember to be open-minded and if they don’t work or aren’t picked, it isn’t personal.   

Earning Potential: Be a Good Communicator

Keep everyone informed of what is going on with your work! This helps keep the machine running, so to speak. It also provides an opportunity to cross train as we mentioned earlier. Things tend to fall through the cracks when they aren’t communicated effectively and consistently. 

Do not underestimate the power of repeating yourself. Your coworkers have their own set of tasks and troubles, so it does the mind good to repeat yourself. 

Earning Potential: Prioritize the Team

Employers want people who progress their mission and vision which means knowing the big picture and prioritizing the team’s needs. Don’t be the person who shows up to work, does the bare minimum and skedaddle.

Earning Potential: Help Others

Help others when they need it. Your willingness to share your knowledge will not go overlooked. 

Earning Potential: Control Stress

Stress is inevitable in all industries. Working is stressful. You need to manage your own stress so that it doesn’t negatively impact your coworkers.  

Earning Potential: Empower Employees

Encourage others to step up and do a little more. Shed some light on the big picture if they haven’t caught on yet. Empower them to take control of their position. It means less work for you and companies want a team full of skillful people. 

People also need encouragement, from entry-level to the C-suite. 

Earning Potential: Build Relationships

Employers want people who want to be at work. When you have great work relationships, you want to be at work. Whether you share your personal life with them is up to you. We want you to have a positive professional relationship with them.

Earning Potential: Promote Inclusive Culture

Create a positive environment that people want to be a part of! Make people excited to show up to work everyday. Promoting an inclusive culture, deflates negative energy. You create value when you help to create this environment that others want to be a part of. 

Earning Potential: Take Criticism

Learn how to take criticism. We all have our opportunities for growth and if your employer addresses you with criticism, take it on the chin, learn from it and better yourself. You will be commended for how well you accept the criticism and what you do with it.
