fab'rik founder shares her passion for fashion

ATLANTA -- Many people dream of being their own boss, but struggle to make the leap.

Twelve years ago, Atlanta native Dana Spinola gathered the courage to turn her lifelong passion into a profession and opened her first clothing boutique, fab'rik.

"I get up early. I stay up late. My mind is always working," she said.

And it's perfectly understandable. Spinola has had a lot on her plate since starting fab'rik. She has since opened 21 boutiques and franchises. Her mission has always been frugal fashion -- less than $100 -- in a fun, inviting boutique environment.

Being your own boss can seem liberating, but many who make that leap say they end up working even more.
