Money and fame are two of the things that every person desires. However, when it comes to great business and excellent entrepreneurship, being rich and famous is not enough. Business aspirants should make a legacy, consisting of inspirations, reputations, outstanding brands and companies that help people lives. Here is a story of a Filipina entrepreneur who established the first Fashion Boutique in Vienna.
During the third year celebration and at the same time Thanksgiving Feast of Streetlook international fashion boutique, Marialen Dimailig, a successful Pinay entrepreneur and owner of the store in Vienna shares her story on her business, how she started, her influences and precious advice on budding entrepreneurs.
„I started this fashion business three years ago and I feel very much blessed since it has grown so much since it started. I was blessed to have great family, who supports me a lot in this endeavor. Together with my husband and our children, we worked hard at the beginning in order to establish this store,“ Marialen related.
The whole family spent days and nights for the renovation of their future store.
Having entered into this business arena, Marialen believes that this requires an enormous amount of effort, discipline and self-motivation. Nevertheless, it is an amazing experience as she was able to visit places and meet people. She regularly attends fashion exhibitions in Europe, particularly in Paris and London. All her products come from these fashion exhibitions.
Marialen‘s formula to success: With vision and hard work, you will be able to achieve something incredible with your life.
„I take things as they come and hope for the best. One should just keep on working and be positive. One thing will always lead to another. We just need to keep moving forward,“ Marialen said.
Marialen contends that future entrepreneurs should really follow their passion in order to reach their respective goals.
„Celebrate your successes and also learn from your failures. Look for mentors and appreciate those that help you in your life. Look up to God. Relationships with loved ones are very important,“ Marialen added.
Streetlook caters to young and old customers. It offers not only modern and traditional clothes but also different accessoires (bags and necklaces).
The Streetlook Fashion Boutique is located at the Billrothstrasse 43, 1190 Vienna.
