Happy Fashion Brain Friday!! It’s been a GREAT week. One of those that really reminds me why I love my job.
I was honored to do a Seminar for the Chicago Fashion Incubator Designers-in-Residence. Begs the question, “Do they actually sleep there on the 10th floor of Macy’s”?
I just LOVE teaching entrepreneurs new strategies — not just to survive — but to prosper with their creativity! The topic was time management and how to stay FOCUSED, which is a particularly hard skill for those of us who are creative right brain types.
I hosted a tele-class and interviewed Maggie Keenan of givingadvice. I learned a TON about “Growing Your Brand and Saving the World”. Maggie explained the whole cause marketing thing, why it’s so effective, and how designers can get involved and make a difference. Until this call, I didn’t really think Fashion Brain could really give to a cause in any meaningful way. Man, did I learn differently! Thanks again, Maggie. You seriously rock.

Remember, everything is harder the first time you do it. Were you great at riding a bike the first time you tried it? How about the first time you ever baked a cake? Or your first kiss? The same goes for selling your line.
