true – truː/ = real; genuine; authentic:
believer – bɪˈliːvə/ =
True Believer = a person who professes absolute belief in something
When it comes to True Believers, we couldn’t possibly think of a better person to start with than our very own True Believer, Lorna Jane Clarkson.
Almost thirty years after founding her Activewear label, Lorna is today the Chief Creative Officer of her own hugely successful global business and creator of the Active Living Philosophy. Lorna is an internationally renowned entrepreneur, author, award winning fashion designer, trusted wellness advocate and here at LJ HQ, she is our daily inspiration and fearless leader – phew, what a list!
It may come as a surprise to many, but Lorna didn’t start out with this success. She built it for herself through passion, drive, determination and self-belief.
Starting out cutting garment patterns on her living room floor to now running a global business, Lorna has built her brand around inspiring and empowering women to live their best, most active lives.
Lorna’s story of success didn’t come without her fair share of challenges, triumphs and hurdles along the way. But what made the difference was Lorna’s determination, her unwavering self-belief in her ability to make it happen and her commitment to the end goal.
Above all, what Lorna’s story proves is that when you start with BELIEVE, anything is possible.
So, here’s to the believers… they are the ones who change the world.
