Tory Burch is one of my favorite designers by far, and not just because of her dope bags and shoes. Not only does she design with today’s woman in mind the philanthropy arm of her business is all about supporting the economic empowerment of women in the U.S. through small business loans, mentoring and entrepreneurial education. The girl is just dope!
Look at everything in a positive way. (Negativity is noise)!
Listed below are some of my favorite quotes from the fashion designer and businesswoman:
On Juggling Being A Business Woman and Mother: “My biggest challenge every day is to be a great mother and a great businesswoman.”
On Being Ambitious: “Sometimes women entrepreneurs are their own challenge, in terms of believing in themselves. There is no need to apologize for being ambitious.”
Own Your Success: “We need to get women to the point where they aren’t apologizing. It’s time to take ownership in our success.”
Dealing With Negativity: “Think of negativity as noise and always believe in what you’re doing.”
Being An Entrepreneur: “Being an entrepreneur isn’t just a job title, and it isn’t just about starting a company. It’s a state of mind. It’s about seeing connection others can’t, seizing opportunities others won’t, and forging new direction that others haven’t.”
Pursing Your Dreams: “Fearlessly pursue your dreams. Embrace your ambitions.”
Let Your Light Shine!
