"I discovered Fabjob
years ago and I have bought several
guides to anything I thought I
wanted to do. But this last time I
bought the guide to my ultimate
dream of owning my own clothing
boutique for women. I used every
ounce of information in getting my
business started. Many people didn't
know how I was going to do it or
even believed that I could. But I did!
I celebrated my 1 yr
anniversay Feb 5th which means that
I am now entering my 2nd year as a
business owner. This year has
been challenging but well worth it. I
am now about to launch my online
store and we are moving into a
showroom from our retail location. Thank you
for great guides that guide people
into living their dreams."
