How Did You Determine Your Passion?
I heard someone say , "Whatever you think about as soon as you get up in the morning, that's what you should be doing."For as long as I can remember, I've had a love for fashion. But not just the clothes, I've always been fascinated with fabrics and how different textiles work with the body.
What Challenges Have You Had To Overcome?
The biggest challenges that I had to overcome was getting over the need to prove to others that I could be successful at running a lucrative clothing company. Lets face it, everyone has a clothing line or is a designer, but few are selling their garments. It's mainly more of a hobby for most. I was determine to turn my passion into my paycheck and thats just what I did!
How Do You Stay Focused?
It's not hard to stay focused when you're an entrepreneur. There are no days off. I'm involved in every aspect of my business. Between teaching and running my business, I work 12 hrs a day 6 days a week. Im always in work mode ..ALWAYS!
