520 Allison Andrews: No Limits
Why Growth Always Happens When You’re Outside Your Comfort Zone
When people tell you all the reasons why you can’t succeed at something, do you believe them? Or does it make you more determined to succeed?
Often the best entrepreneurs know they’re onto something truly disruptive when convention has it that they can’t succeed.
Allison Andrews says just about everyone told her she would fail when she first launched Fashion Week San Diego in 2007. She shares why you should never believe the people who tell you why you can’t do something, because FWSD is disrupting the fashion industry and enabling young and independent designers to be discovered.
Also President of APA Business Consulting and Executive Director of the nonprofit FAB (Fashion Art Business) Authority, Allison shares how she’s taken it virtual during the Coronavirus Pandemic – and how to pivot fast in a fast-changing industry.
For Allison, there are no limits – so listen on to get tips on how to boost your business mojo and confidence.
- Why Coronavirus is a catalyst for change yielding tremendous opportunities for nimble entrepreneurs
- How the fashion industry has become fast paced and hyper responsive to consumer demand – and why designers can win if you can produce “immediate” orders
- How to take an event virtual and profit
- Why entrepreneurs should always have the exit in mind – “you’re closing or you’re selling”, she says.
- Why kids borne into families of addiction tend to be natural entrepreneurs
- And much more!
