If we have fun, the business will do well, says Sarah Miyazawa LaFleur, Founder, and CEO of M.M.LaFleur, a clothing and personal styling brand for professional women.
Sarah had zero background in fashion and was not even interested in Fashion before starting M.M.LaFleur. Instead, she had a background working for a non-profit in South Africa and a private equity firm in New York. But couldn’t find a passion for her work. That changed when she began visiting the Garment District of New York and learning about the fabric industry.
In her journey, she understood that being a person that motivates a team is an important job. Along with this, she realized the significance of bringing out good energy every day and self-care. Thinking of things that you are grateful for is crucial to stop the negative loop.
In the first part, Sarah talks about:
* The role her Japanese mother played in her approach to business.
* How she manages the feeling of being grounded, stress, and anxiety.
* What pushed her to what she’s doing now.
