5. What is your biggest pet peeve?

I have a problem with people that are not hygienic.

6. If you could have dinner with anyone (living or not) who would it be?

Chanel. She was so ahead of her time and was one of the only woman entrepreneurs of her era.

7. Why is having a powerful personal brand important to you?

It is important to build a strong personal brand so people can differentiate who I am. There is a lot of competition in the fashion industry. Any industry! So, I have to make sure I am sending the right message to the world. I do that through social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, etc), my website and how I present myself. The more people that become aware of my work and brand through media and reputation attracts more work to me. Even if I am not working, I am working. Working on your brand is constant.

8. What is your #1 tip for fellow women entrepreneurs?

Do what you love and the money will follow. When you are happy that is being successful in life. It is not always about money. But, for some reason when you love what you do and you are good at it, the money just seems to come. Mantra: Do what you love and the money will follow….
