Untold Story #19: Meet Wendy Yates World's Greatest Women

    • Business

Today’s woman had the dream of creating a design company that would impact how people around the world experienced their living spaces. She wasn’t sure how she could ever make such a big dream come true.  She decided to start by going into her closet. In this dimly lit small space, she wrote business plans and journaled her thoughts. And when she excitedly shared her vision, others didn’t take her seriously. In their eyes she only had a design degree and was certainly too young. But what they couldn’t see was her burning desire to impact the world with her designs. All she needed was one person to give her a chance. So, with fake confidence, she went looking for that one person. After many nos, she finally found someone who said yes. That one yes led to two which led to four and, before long, a multi-million-dollar design company was created. Her journey to greatness had begun. It is my pleasure to introduce you to Wendy Yates.
