"Failure humbles me. It’s a great experience. If I had to do it again, I would still embrace the closure of all 21 of my stores and bankruptcy. My advice to parents is we are raising adults, not kids, and we are raising them to have an entrepreneurial mindset. Entrepreneurship embodies risk-taking, integrity, sharing, taking care of yourself and others, and giving back to society." Nanz Chong, Founder of Nanz Inc.com
