A personal note from Joan: I started working for my mom in her office when I was eleven years old — and I worked for her every summer and during holiday breaks from when I was 11 to when I started college. She was a business woman herself, running the west coast division of my uncle’s N.Y. clothing company. It was she who taught me a lot about business – running a business, developing professional skills, and having the tenacity to keep going strong, even during challenging times.
