Camila Mejía is the founder of Krono Polo, a brand specialized in polo articles that has managed to expand rapidly around the world; in the same way, Camila has managed to be a name that is heard frequently, as the designer heads of Krono. However, we want to take the opportunity to know who Camila was before getting to live the passion for polo.
What is a normal day like for Camila?
Camila: I usually get up early in the morning and the first thing I do is a big cup of coffee, I start to process orders from Krono Polo and make the list of activities for the people who work with me, then I go to pages looking for read news such as High Bees, Designboom, Vogue.com and thus keep abreast of the world of design and fashion.
Then I go to Krono Polo’s Instagram and check all the publications that have tagged us and define which ones can be reposted, I also study all the Instagram profiles of the competition, the players and the polo media; including Pololine and Polo Times, trying not to miss absolutely anything that happened in the polo world. Among other things, I am also in charge of checking the birthdays of the brand ambassadors daily and then starting to work hard answering emails and all the administrative part of Krono Polo.
Later I check if I have to make a delivery for the magazines I work for, such as a shopping page or choosing clothes for a photoshoot. Finally I finish my day by going to the gym for an hour and a half. On the way back I talk to my friends and family. At night I usually have an event like going out to eat, although in the pandemic I have been developing other parts of the business.
We see that you are a person who enjoys the city, having fun and going out with friends. How do you complement this with running a company?
Camila: During the pandemic, it has been difficult to go out and share with friends, but it is usually part of my personality that, in order to rest, I need to change activities, whenever I work or go to the gym, or see clients or friends, or travel weekends to different countries, I feel that somehow I am recharging myself to continue with my work. A phrase that can define how I see my work breaks is: “To rest is to change activity”
Before coming to the world of polo we know that you had a strenuous routine. Has something changed or is everything the same?
Camila: I think I’m more of a Workaholic, from the moment I get up until I close my eyes at night I can’t stop thinking about work, now that it’s my company much more, but when I worked for other brands they have always recognized me as one of the people that does not stop working 24/7.
Do you miss any of the jobs you previously had? Has your lifestyle changed since you came to the polo world?
Camila: Suddenly the dressing up, which translates into those moments when you have to organize yourself to go out, but which is not only reduced to getting dressed and that’s it. That is, the time it takes to think about the event to which you are invited, factors that influence what to use and what not to use, protocol and etiquette and the truth is that in the world I was in before, every day from morning to the night had to be putting different things on me; I changed up to three times a day: for the office, from the office to the gym, then to go out in the evening and then to go out at night to an event, dress for airports and finally, have that contact with different clothes throughout the day was something exciting that I miss.
Any dream to fulfill or a goal to reach?
Camila: I really want to advise companies and how to develop their products and how to grow, so I always wanted to have my company do Free Lance to help other people and companies and my goal has always been to help others in how to emerge as a company.
