Whitney Port destroyed many stereotypes of herself and successful fashion designers during the September LinkedIn Discussion series which took place in New York City when she revealed that the success of her retail fashion line "Whitney Eve" did not happen overnight and it involved a huge amount of RISK!
That last word is usually the equivalent of saying 'run the other way' for some business people and even entertainers who would prefer the 'safe' route to success as if there is ever one. The attractive fashion designer and television personality who became known to the public through the reality show "The Hills" revealed during the discussion which is now receiving much attention that the biggest risk she has ever taken was the now very successful "Whitney Eve" fashion retail line.
However, her success was the product of a large amount of work that took place before the fashion line became successful. She noted how for many people looking on the outside there is a preconceived notion that her success happened overnight when in reality that is the farthest thing from the truth. She did receive some help from her late father, a garment manufacturer but after his death she was tempted to 'throw in the towel' as the challenges at times felt overwhelming but she picked up the pieces and learned new tasks and for her that became the most empowering aspect of getting the company to where it is today, a thriving retail company.
She did something that only those who have an intense desire will do: she took a risk ... on herself and it paid off huge. She followed her dream and when the obstacles arose she fought through and now she is reaping the benefits of believing in herself.
Whitney Port has become the exception in the world of entertainment: a reality star who has become a role model.
