Retail success story: Urban Outfitters

Read the story of how one little store at a university grew into the lucrative empire of Urban Outfitters, Anthropologie and Free People stores around North America and Europe. After graduating from college and deciding to start a retail store, Richard Hayne and Judy Wicks had only a combined $3,000. The couple couldn't afford both an apartment and a storefront and ended up living in the back of their store for about a year, decorating the store by painting wooden crates they took from Chinatown trash bins.

You can reach your goals, whether they're big or small. It just may take some time and sacrifice.
