I was talking with my 17 year old daughter about clothing and how someone young can afford fashion and I told her about Dana Spinola. Dana, left a great job in corporate America to pursue the dream of creating a new type of boutique where everyone can afford to feel beautiful. Today, 15 years later, fab’rik has over 40 stores and Dana was named Atlanta Business Chronicle’s Small Business Person of the year. Dana also launched a nonprofit arm free fab’rik providing free shopping sprees for human trafficking survivors. When I asked Dana about her vision she just said, “My vision15 years ago was to create a place where everyone could afford to feel beautiful.That means everyone can have the highest level experience without the price tag.”
The lesson to us all is, regardless of what you are doing, there just may be a huge vision out there for you to change the world and make it a better place.
