The buzz: Wardrobe!
For the first time in 30 years, small business closures outpace start-ups. Despite the fact that women continue to start businesses at a faster rate than men, the number of women owners grossing at least $1 million has declined from 3 to 2 percent (Forbes).

The experts speak.
Susan Solovic, THE Small Business Expert: “Always be a first rate version of yourself and not a second rate version of someone else.” (Judy Garland)
Valerie Shondel, The Business Strategist: “My mother said to me, ‘If you become a soldier, you’ll be a general, if you become a monk you’ll end up as the pope.’ Instead, I became a painter and wound up as Picasso.” (Pablo Picasso)
Joseph Pietrafesa II, Strategico: “If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.” (Katherine Hepburn)
