We had the good fortune of connecting with Olivia Fortune and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Olivia, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
Risk-taking has been a big part of my life in the last few years. I realized if I didn’t do things now, then when? I’m in my early 20’s so I feel like this is the perfect time to try new ventures and explore what life has to offer. Risk-taking has gotten me out of my comfort zone, and I have also met some fantastic people during my journey. I will continue to Risk take and bet on myself, especially at a pivotal time like this during my life.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I started my company, The Fortune Label, in my senior year of college. Making sure I was ready to launch by the time I graduated. It was hard trying to juggle a job, several courses, and putting a company together. I wanted everything to be perfect, but then I soon realized perfection would slow down your progress. I’ve learned to take things for what they are, and I can perfect them later. I have also learned that I’m not always right, and it’s okay to ask others for help. My business is like my baby, so I feared asking for outside use, thinking they’d crush my hopes and dreams. The Fortune Label represents women across the world who want to go from fitting into standing out. If you like to dress up and turn heads, this is the place for you. We want women to feel like a million bucks without breaking the bank. We offer pieces that are timeless and can be dressed up or down. It is vital to me that all Fortune Label babes feel like the best version of themselves.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I am such a foodie. I would go to my favorite restaurants ( Le Bilbouquet, Pappadeaux, Escorpion), The Spa- Sole Spa Shopping- Lenox mall A night out of the fun- wherever the wind blows.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I want to give recognition to my parents. They continue to push and motivate me to follow my dreams. I have learned so much from them growing up while they were on their entrepreneurial journey. Now I am at that age where we work on things together, and they even look to me for business advice sometimes. I hope I can continue to make them proud and continue our family legacy.
