You just started your own business after working in the fashion industry in NYC for many years. What gave you the courage and grit to decide now was the time to start your own thing?
I’ve wanted my own business since I started college… so for about 10 years now. I went to business seminars and read books but it was never the right time. Then, while I was working at my last company, I was actually happy to just build the vision of the founder and take ownership that way. However, things changed (in a positive way for everyone) and I was left with a choice - to start my own business or… actually, for me there was never a second choice. I just always knew that when the opportunity presented itself, I had to jump on it. I believe that my God opened the door at the right time. Funny how things work out. They say that when you love someone you have to let them go. I feel, it’s that way with many things in life. You have to let your dream die before it can sprout and grow.
