July 28 21:32 2017

There is a marked difference between a job and a passion. A passion creates happiness and brings lots of fulfillment when doing them. This is the case of T. Denise Manning. She discovered a passion and gave up her job for it. She resigned from corporate America to become more impactful to her immediate and surrounding community through her Boutique and nonprofit organization located in downtown Stockton CA. It is not just a boutique, but also an avalanche of services.

About Pretty Lady

The boutique was opened in Jan 2017 but founded in the owner’s garage in Okinawa Japan in 2014. The idea to open the boutique was conceived with the desire to provide new and gently used clothing, shoes and accessories to women and girls at affordable rates. It also has customs T-Shirts studio.

However, Pretty lady is more than a boutique; it donates a portion of its profits to inspire women and girls in their respective careers. Pretty lady coaches women and girls with job readiness and donates interview attires for women on probation or parole while coaching them to get back to work with confidence. Pretty lady strives to lift women up and encourage them to realize their potential.
