What Keeps Me Going, From Betsey Johnson (VIDEO)

What keeps fashion designer Betsey Johnson going? Betsey says that the memory of her mother, who has passed away, keeps her going. She went on to say, "I think you just feel it. You have to be very strong, very positive and have a lot of energy to do any business."

Betsey also blocks out what other people say and makes sure to protect herself and take care of herself before anyone else. She also surrounds herself with good, positive people to spread positivity.

"I love the panic of being creative all the time and keeping it new but keeping it me. Keeping the variety. I love the excitement of every day being a brand new day," Betsy says.
