Mayra Jimenez, co-founder of the Orchid Boutique, a swimwear maker, describes three ways she overcomes setbacks. Watch video
Mayra Jimenez always believed real change could be made with small steps. In 2007 she and her husband founded The Orchid Boutique, specializing in designer swimwear made in their native Colombia.

The Orchid Boutique has been featured in InStyle, PeopleStyleWatch, Lucky, Fitness, Women’s Health, Southern Living, Miami Herald, and more. @mayra_j
