From -$2,000 in her bank account to generating a projected $75 million in sales, entrepreneur Sarah LaFleur is on the show today sharing her trials, tribulations and tips for living your best financial life. Sarah is the founder of MM.LaFleur, a new women’s fashion brand that CNBC says is “shaking up retail.” Sarah started the company in 2011 after quitting her job in private equity. With $35,000 in savings and another $35,000 in loans from her parents she launched what would become one of fashion’s hottest new clothing lines for professional women.
Sarah and I go deep on the show. She shares…
- The side hustle that helped her bank account stay afloat in those early days of starting her company.
- The early hardships of launching MM.LaFleur. “I felt like I had ruined my resume…” she said.
- The time she was certain the company was going bankrupt and her idea that turned it all around.
