Tuesday's Tips ~ Liz Lange: The M.O.Mentrepreneur We All Aspire to Be

What is your best advice to a budding entrepreneur? 

You have to shut out the naysayers and the negativity that inevitably surrounds any new idea. Negativity that comes both from outsiders and also from your own self doubts. 

What is a must-have site or resource all entrepreneurs should know and follow? 

I wish Twitter had been around when I was a budding entrepreneur. The ability to "follow" and connect with other entrepreneurs, potential mentors and even customers is invaluable.

Liz Lange, Founder and Creative Director of Liz Lange Maternity, is a fashion and retail pioneer. Armed with the philosophy that women should look and feel beautiful during pregnancy, she has single-handedly revolutionized maternity style and society's perception of pregnant women,in nine short years. Today, the high-end Liz Lange Maternity Collection is sold at Liz's three Liz Lange Maternity boutiques, the Liz Lange e-commerce web site and via a national and international wholesale business. In 2002, the Liz Lange for Target line became the only maternity fashion offered in Target stores throughout the United States.

In 2003, Lange authored "Liz Lange's Maternity Style: How to Look Fabulous During the Most Fashion-Challenged Time". The book provides advice on everything from color choice to accessories, casual Fridays to holiday parties, active wear to weekend staples - all building from a carefully selected wardrobe focused on mixing and matching, sensibility and style.

Last year, her first ever non-maternity clothing collection, Completely Me by Liz Lange, debuted exclusively on HSN.
