Biggest hurdle in running your business?

The biggest hurdle running my business has been self doubt (still working on it). All of the daily problem-solving has helped incrementally build my confidence.

“Leigh is a collection of classics, building upon a foundation of polished items distinguished by exceptional materials and subtle details. Originally from North Carolina, Morgan's grandmother was a factory worker in a women's shirting factory and she has always shared an interest in textiles and apparel. Morgan's collections serve to empower the women wearing Leigh garments and lend a quiet but certain confidence.”
