“I Know What I Want…Now What Do I Do?”

Kicking Out the Ladder

Q&A: ModCloth’s Susan Gregg Koger on What She Wishes She’d Known When She Started

Susan Gregg Koger started ModCloth the summer after high school with her then-boyfriend, now-husband as a place to sell her excess thrift-store finds. So when she went to college, ModCloth came too.
