All you need to do to make it big is to dream big and work on them. Do Won Chang, owner of celebrated clothing brand Forever 21 is a living proof. From a single store in Los Angeles to 457 stores in nearly fifty countries today, Do Won Chang’s story is referred to time and again by aspiring businessmen all over the world.
Do Won Chang originally belongs to South Korea. He never had a big life in his own country either. In fact, he grew up working in coffee shops. When Chang immigrated to the United States with his wife Jin Sook Chang, he knew he wanted to do some kind of business. He decided upon retail when he saw the businessmen driving swankiest cars in town. This was the sole reason he took up the garment business, as stated in many interviews.
