From growing up on a dirt floor as a young girl in Mao’s Communist China… to living the American Dream with a world-renowned fashion empire, multiple homes, and a truly divine life—ladies, meet Sue Wong, whom I am now officially dubbing The Empress of Possibility.
And she’s all ours on this week’s Glambition Radio.
Walk through any Neiman’s, Nordstrom, or other high-end department store, go to the evening section, and you’ll see her amazing gowns. They are sold in 27 countries around the world. She’s busy right now preparing for next month’s huge fashion show where she’ll unveil her sumptuous fall collection. (Sue told me it was inspired by the romance of the Edwardian period, and I can’t wait to see her new designs.)
Growing up in China, trapped in a totalitarian regime, her family was often so hungry that (sorry this may make you nauseated) her mother and grandmother would capture and cook mice and rats to feed their little girl. Her mother risked everything getting them to the United States for a better life.
Sue’s father wanted her to be an accountant, but her love for art and design was what drove her, and she was prepared to dedicate her life to it.
She tells the story of being a wildly successful multi-millionaire by the time she was 25, and then losing it all in a combination of a painful divorce and some unscrupulous business partners. So she started up again, and while it took much longer to build, she came back better than ever. Her tale is a powerful one and you need to hear it here for yourself.
On this week’s Glambition Radio, I asked Sue to share her top 3 success tips. Here’s a sneak preview for you, in her own words:
Tip #1: Learn to be fearless
Because Sue’s family risked their lives to get to this country, it makes sense that Sue doesn’t let fear get in her way. She says, “Fear is not an option. You have to be fearless. Be prepared to work hard.”
Tip #2: Be prepared to sacrifice and follow through
“As in any art, one must be prepared to sacrifice. It is 100% commitment, dedication… and requires singular ambition, focus and the discipline to follow through. If you have an idea but you don’t follow through, that’s nothing to me.”
Tip #3: Practice the three P’s
“Philosopher and mystic George Gurdjieff taught the three P’s: patience, persistence, and perseverance. That’s what it’s really going to take. You have to be excellent and remain true and dedicated to your vision.”
You’re going to also love what she says about tapping into divine inspiration—what I’ve shared here is just a tiny bit of her wisdom.
