It's always better when 717 Boutiques put on together

If you’re into fashion and want to start your own business, don't let anything stop you from getting it popping. Being a visionary isn't solely based on being a creative thinker or the only sacrificial leopard in the room. In the 21st century, being a successful visionary requires you to be more of a critical thinker who also possesses the ability to shift the narrative. Many times, visionaries tend to psych themselves out when trying to outdo their "competition". I mean, of course, you should always encourage yourself to have a creative edge over the next person. However, when you come from a small market where everyone is familiar with one another, there should also be some display of work together. A life fulfilled requires genuine support.

Over the weekend, I saw a video that featured a group of Harrisburg PA's dopest online and brick-and-mortar boutiques and it made me smile. The owners of Fashion_Over_Foolishness, Urban Snob, Elevated Shoetique, MeanGirlStyle, Vintage_n_Such, Gifted by Laur'alle, Virago FIerce, Couture Doll 87, Tia Lynnette Style, and Thee Anthony James showed us that their Levels are Ready! They’ve been killing the local industry with their transcendent visions and dismissing any negative stigma that their haters (typical) create. This passionate group has designed their own table and they’ve placed their cutlery strategically so that they can all eat together. And you can bet that they’ll flip any industry table over and have ZERO regrets.
