Urban Entrepreneur: Fashion -- (career book, nonfiction), sample page:
But let’s talk about you. Because that’s what this book is really all about. It’s not about Kimora Lee Simmons. It’s not about Tyra, or Beyonce. They are wonderful examples of what can happen when you follow your passion. But it’s about how you can dream big—and then get out there and make it happen.
It’s hard to imagine where fashion and lifestyle is headed. The future is so wide open. In this amazing new technological age, people have to look good at all times. There’s usually a photographer around whenever a celebrity goes out to lunch. Normal people also have cell phones that take high-resolution pictures and videos. So celebrities don’t want to be caught slipping.
Even if you’re not a celebrity, you still want to look your best. We are uploading photos to social media on a daily basis. The whole world gets to see our lives in real time. That’s different than the way it used to be in the old days. So now, more than ever, people are paying close attention to how they look.
That’s all good news if you’re interested in the world of fashion. It means that there will be many great opportunities for you. Whether you want to design a line, do hair or make-up, create a new type of women’s shoe, or something else, you can make it. You just have to think like an entrepreneur: where is there an opportunity? What can I do to take advantage of this opportunity?
For most of us, it starts with our education. Today, school. Tomorrow, the exciting world of fashion. Hold on tight, it’s gonna be great. It’s gonna be crazy. It’s going to be your time.
