вЂњRemember years ago you were at an Elton John concert in Las Vegas. He played the song Tiny Dancer like it was his last time, and that's when you realized that for him to perform on stage was like breathing. That moment changed your life. You realized that singing and dancing brought you pleasure but were not your passion,вЂќ Victoria writes.
вЂњThat same day you started looking for yourself to discover your own dreams. It was time to step away from the Spice Girls. You dared to do something on your own for the first time, and it was terrifying. It was scary to close the chapter that defined you.вЂќ
After releasing several solo singles in the early noughties, Victoria quickly realized that music was not what she wanted to do. In 2009, Beckham founded the eponymous fashion brand and has been working in the fashion industry ever since. Under the Victoria Beckham brand, Victoria also produces care and decorative cosmetics.
