Eileen Fisher on Starting Her Own Company
"If we listen to our instincts, our risks feel right to us. When I started the company, with my last $350, everyone (especially my mother) thought I was taking a huge risk, but it never felt that way to me. I had these pictures in my mind— a vision of simple shapes— and I followed the pictures until they became real. It's the little risks that shape our lives...stretching yourself a little each day." — Eileen Fisher
