Ruthie Davis not only creates amazing shoes, but she is also bold and beautiful. And she is not afraid to brag about her brand, after all she is the creator of some fabulous products — not only shoes, but also handbags. (Read our feature on Ruthie here.)
The youngest of six children, her parents were great roles models. “My mother told me I was world class — that whatever I would do would be world class. And I watched my father lead, he was a powerful businessman in our community.”
Ruthie struts her power with grace and compassion. For example, her shoes are made abroad and she deals with several vendors in Italy. She told me of a challenge she was presented with, some prototypes weren’t made to her specs. Instead of getting bent out of shape, Ruthie asked the vendor to call her after he had dinner — she would have a solution, and she did. “It all works out — it always does. And where would it have gotten me if I got all upset? Not very far.”
After having a drink with Ruthie, I feel like I know another great role model, colleague and friend.
