6 Jane Lu
Jane Lu’s number one piece of advice is to take a chance.
Otherwise, you could be stuck at a boring job for the rest of your life.
“People should back themselves more,” Lu says.
After her first business failed, Lu said many people expected her to fail again. Her second attempt was Showpo, a popular online fashion retailer that turned over around $10 million in 2015.

Showpo also offers its customers recipes, videos, photoshoots and articles and with content like that, it’s no surprise Showpo is very big on social media. The retailers has over half a million Facebook followers alone.
“Don’t only look at the risk of failing, but also the risk of being stuck in a really boring job that you hate,” Lu says.
“Take a chance on yourself – I’m living the dream.”
