Luke Song

Here's a fun little article I did on Luke Song, the creator of Aretha Franklin's Inauguration hat. His life is a great lesson for following your passions. Who thinks milliners run multi-million dollar businesses? But that's exactly what he does, and he loves it. His advice: "I really think you should do what you love, and not listen to others say that's not a respectable position. You'll do well in what you love."

According to the latest NY Times article, his hat is landing in the Smithsonian. Not too shabby, huh?
