What does navel-gazing have to do with a Fashion 2.0 business?

What does navel-gazing have to do with a Fashion 2.0 business?

First of all, what’s navel gazing? 

‘Navel gazing’ is modern-day slang for the word “omphaloskepsis“, which is a word with Greek origins that means literally, “contemplation of one’s navel as an aid to meditation”. These days people often use the term ‘navel gazing’ when they are referencing introspection (and sometimes it implies narcissism, since it’s introspection done without the meditative aspect).

For our purposes, we’re tagging our posts with “navel gazing” when we’re telling you about us as opposed to the outside world. We’ll stay away from the self-absorption and instead aim to bring you valuable information about what we do and why we do it.

Okay, cool. Why are you doing it on your blog? 

We hope that it’s helpful! We really believe in being as open and transparent as realistically possible. We’ll share mistakes, celebrate wins, and divulge our systems and processes. If you’re a business owner or aspiring entrepreneur, we think that these types of posts will be particularly worthwhile.
