Tory Burch is a billionaire. Yes billionaire with a ‘B’, and if that’s not a great way to start the year off I don’t know what is. Although I am not a fan of her designs, I am a fan of her work ethic, and how well she runs her empire. And clearly she runs it very, very well. From starting her company in her kitchen (talk about humble beginnings) to joining the 2013 Forbes World’s Billionaires list in March, she has made a good use of the last decade. Hearing this news was definitely motivational for me, I admire people who beat the odds, especially women, it gives me hope and inspires me to push forward with my dreams. To go from starting a fashion label out of your home in 2004, to now being the second youngest self-made billionaire in America proves that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.
Congratulations Ms. Burch I hope your empire continues to blossom!
