DCF: Why do you love what you do? What makes you funemployment?
KF: Every single day, I get to live my dream come true. I get to be the ultimate girls girl. Not everyone gets to help women prepare for their first interview, a magical anniversary or a trip they have planned and saved for for over a year. I hear my customers ups and downs, their struggles and successes — Bishop has become a place of friendship, shopping and fun. I understand the luck plus all the hard work that I have put into my shop to allow myself this life treasure. It is never lost on me — not everyone is this lucky.

DCF:  Who was your first mentor and how did you find them?
KF: My parents, the hubs and my family have been my backbone throughout this adventure. They are just beyond. Also, my bishop girls. They allow me to manage the shop and my children all at once. They are unbelievable. (DCF: Good support is soooo important!! You have some awesome shop girls!)

DCF: What’s your happy place?
KF: Anywhere with my children. (DCF: I could stare at little baby faces for hours so I can only imagine what it’s like when you made them!)

DCF: Where do you get your energy?
KF: Coffee.

DCF: What does balance mean to you and how do find it?
KF: No such thing. (DCF: You must be doing something right cause you seem to juggle all the things!! I’m sure there are many moments we don’t see and we know no one is perfect so keep rocking!)

DCF: What sacrifices did you have to make to get here?
KF:  To own a small business means everything falls on you. I have given up so many fun weekend getaways, family events, and holidays. As disappointing as that can be, to have a successful business is very validating. (DCF: You are a champion!!)

DCF: What struggles have you faced as a women in your industry?
KF: As a mom, it is very difficult to find a balance between work and owning a business.

DCF: What is the early advice you didn’t listen to that you wish you had?
KF:  Always trust your gut. Always. (DCF: That is sooo important, I try to listen to my gut on everything!)

DCF: What was your greatest failure and what did you learn from it?
KF: My greatest failure came from not trusting my gut. Always trust your gut.

About Morgan of DCFunemployment

Welcome to DCFunemployment. My name is Morgan and I am a native Washingtonian. In this post Paris Hilton era, socialite has became a bit of a dirty word. However by definition, a socialite is a person who is well known in fashionable society and is fond of social activities and entertainment. Like it or not, that's me so these are the diaries of a reluctant socialite. Follow me here or on social media to see some of the best that DC has to offer.
