I often get asked about how I started Monif C. and thoughts on how to start a business and the notion of success. I think about a quote I read somewhere years ago, “The difference between success and mediocrity is all in the way you think”…I think this quote was by Dean Francis. I truly believe that your thoughts are a big driving force behind who is successful and who isn’t.

In that vain, I wanted to share with my lovelies some great books that have helped me to “focus” my thoughts throughout the years:

Think and Grow Rich – by Napoleon Hill

Ask and It Is Given, Learning to Manifest Your Desires – Esther and Jerry Hicks

Rich Dad, Poor Dad – Robert Kiyosaki

Conversations with God – Neale Donald Walsch

Eighteen 5 star reviews on Citysearch, Voted Best Plus Size Women’s Clothing Store on Citysearch, featured in Time Out New York, but only ONE measly review on Yelp! No GOOD! If you don’t know about Yelp, it’s a great website where people can review their favorite stores, restaurants, post events, and meet new people. I use yelp a million times a week to find new places in NYC.

But my own company has one 1 solitary review! Albeit a 5 star review, but still.… I know there are many happy customers that have shopped our NYC store and can type up a review for us!!! RIGHT???

If you are a happy Monif C. customer, please help us out by posting a review on Yelp so other curvy girls like yourself can learn about the hottest place in new york to buy plus size dresses! don’t be selfish and keep our lil secret to yourselves.

Hey everyone, we are so busy here with some new projects that we would love your feedback on the following:

1) New Website – FINALLY! We are working on a new website. If you have any comments or suggestions on things you would like us to have on this new site, let us know.

2) I’m finalizing the last styles for the summer collection and my head is working in overdrive…if there is anything you would love to see for the Summer, let me know!

One of my pressing questions is, should we bring back the Sunner dress in new colors? It’s such a great summer staple!
