The link that I found most helpful provided me with a lot of information not only on Chanels life and background, but it also gave me a lot of insight into her business approach to her success. http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/197624

Coco Chanel was truly an inspirational and interesting woman for a variety of reasons. Chanel was a role model, an entrepreuner, and a revolutionary that did things to change the fashion world forever. One of the most inspirational things about Chanel was that she had a true rags to riches story. She started with nothing and then grew to be one of the most revered fashion designers of all time. She was also inspirational because she wasn't afraid to do something different. Chanel changed the garments of the time, into looser fittting clothes that freed women from confines and also created the ever important "little black dress". Chanel dared to be different and wasn't afraid of failure. Chanel could help us in our own lifes by the fact that despite where we come from or who we are we can do anything we set our mind to, and to never give up on your dreams even if they are different and out of the box. She often stated, "success is often achieved by those who don't know that failure is inevitable" (Cosper). If you don't think about the possibility of failure there will be nothing to hold you back from your success. Sometimes the people that are out of the box become the most successful people, they have no fear.
