The greatest adventures rarely start out intentionally. They begin with a simple idea. They are debated. Inevitably someone will say it's impossible, it can't be done, and whoever attempts it will surely perish from the effort. Once the impossibility has been decided there always seems to be one man - one dumb man, who sets out to defy the odds (usually to impress a girl) and will risk his life to do so (and hopes that she's watching).

The best stories aren't always fiction. Before we begin I would remind you - this actually happened.

    You Go Glen Coco! - The Story of "Coco" Chanel

    Building a business empire that lasts more than 100 years beyond its inception is no easy task. The road is even tougher if you’re an orphaned girl in early 1900’s France.

Throughout history there are countless examples of people using brute strength to win a battle. There is only one who did it in a little black dress.
