With only a few dollars in her trendy handbag and a dream in her heart, Porsche Nichole set her biggest venture in motion.
The Texas native had always wanted her very own clothing boutique. However, she didn’t exactly have a road map as to how to make that happen. The one thing Porsche did know for sure was that the business had to focus on women’s inner beauty.
After carefully researching the ins and outs of business ownership, Porsche opened her online-only shop Pretty Girls Boutique in April 2018. The newly crowned fashion store owner was determined to bring the latest fashion trends at affordable prices to her hometown of Sherman, Texas.
Porsche has some great advice for other females who want to become entrepreneurs. First off, make sure you’re passionate about the thing you want to do — not just today, but in the years to come. And ask yourself if you’re going to be okay with not making as much money at first. If you can answer yes to both, then get out there and start right now.
As Porsche enters her third year as owner of Pretty Girls Boutique, she continues to work hard in hopes of one day being known for her successful Black-owned boutique and the place women flock to when they need to add something to their fashion collection.
