A loan of $5,000 helped purchase and install my truck's AC Unit, and to purchase spring and summer inventory.

Sharlia's story

I'm Sharlia "Lia" Lee, owner of Street Boutique Fashion Truck. I'm an energetic 26 year old, originally from Southern California. I'm normally the three C's: cool, calm, and collected, but over the last few years, managing my marriage, raising my 6 year old daughter, and trying to become a successful entrepreneur before I'm thirty years old has turned my life upside down with drama. Currently, I'm just trying to make sense of my life, and avoid as many mistakes as possible on the road to success.

My professional background is in marketing. At the age of 23, I was named Marketing Director and Administrative manager over a staff of 30. I have since managed two additional companies with employee counts between 12-22. I don't take no for an answer, and as my first boss who took a chance on me said, "Be a bull dog!" In my short professional career, I produced countless marketing collateral, branding packages, websites, social media pages and more. However, after a few years, I knew I wanted to run my own company, not someone else's.

The sky truly is the limit for me. All may seem perfect, but my greatest set back and tragedy occurred 45 days ago, when my father suddenly passed away. Having to deal with his death, sort out his estate, manage my family, continue to run my business, and complete my marketing projects has recently taking me to my breaking point. I'm still struggling to hold on to original passion for my business and life, however, as stated before setbacks make me work harder. This year may have started with a tragedy, but I am determined to come out a winner and to make my father extremely proud of the person I have become.
