While her other high school friends were working during the summer holiday just to make some extra money, 17-year-old Charlotte Fortin was opening up a clothing store. Entrepreneurship isn’t new to Charlotte, she’s following in her father’s and grandfather’s footsteps. Her business “Wound Up” is aimed at 18-40 year olds and sells clothes that include blouses, shorts, skirts and dresses. It was a small trip to California that inspired her to open up her own business, where she saw boutique stores that piqued her interest.
So maybe that’s all it takes. Next time you are on holiday, maybe you too, will see something that inspires you to open up your own business.
