The article focuses on Josie Natori, founder of Natori Co., who left Wall Street. She was Merrill Lynch's first woman vice president in investment banking. Knowing nothing about fashion, she decided to take the leap and invest $150,000 of personal savings into launching Natori Co. Natori says entrepreneurship runs in her family, so she always had that energy to start something of her own. Husband Ken Natori joined the business in 1985 and oversees finance, licensing and partnerships.
