Minding Their Own Business

AMBITIOUS, FOCUSED AND SMART. THE THREE WOMEN WE PROFILE HERE EACH TOOK A LEAP OF FAITH AND FOLLOWED THEIR DREAM. FOR ONE, THAT MEANT COMING BACK TO THE TOWN WHERE SHE WAS BORN, AND LAUNCHING A UNIQUE SKINCARE LINE. FOR ANOTHER, THAT MEANT PULLING UP ROOTS AND SETTLING IN KENYA TO HELP YOUNG GIRLS GET THE EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES THEY LACK. FOR YET ANOTHER, THAT MEANT A MIDLIFE CAREER CHANGE—FROM HOME-FURNISHINGS DESIGNER TO FASHION DESIGNER. IN EACH CASE, THEY ARE FOLLOWING THEIR PASSION WITH A PURPOSE.
