Some New Year Inspiration

Tuesday, January 1, 2013

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Feeling inspired to do great things this year? Yahoo posted 20 great Rags to Riches stories. Love a great self-made entrepreneurial story. This one is about the founder of Forever 21.
Do Won Chang and his wife, Jin Sook, moved to America from Korea in 1981. When they first arrived, Do Won was forced to work three jobs at the same time to support them, as a janitor, a gas station attendant, and in a coffee shop. Eventually, they were able to open their first clothing store in 1984. That one store grew into Forever 21, which pioneered fast fashion and is now a multi-national, 480 store empire that generates around $3 billion in sales a year. It's a family business, with the couple's daughters Linda and Esther helping to run the company.
Hope you're inspired to do great things this year!
