"The most beautiful makeup of a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy."
If you're considering starting your own clothing line, opening an online fashion business or otherwise taking your entrepreneurial and fashion skills to the streets with flair, chances are you've already got a fantastic dose of passion and motivation. In many ways, that passion can carry you through some of the most rewarding and challenging phases of entrepreneurship. But in order to succeed, you'll need to couple experience and know-how with your already blossoming passion for fashion.
