Carley Seale always dreamed of owning her own retail store. While attending the University of Oklahoma, she was able to work at a store called Harold’s where the owner Harold Powell was her mentor. He urged Seale to get a degree in accounting so she could learn the business side of her profession. After working in accounting, she knew that she still yearned to own her own business. “I went into accounting and was miserable,” Seale says. “I did not like being told where to be and what to do. I learned that I was an entrepreneur and couldn’t work for other people.” Seale now owns Favor the Kind, a lifestyle boutique that has expanded from East Dallas to Houston and Crested Butte, Colorado. Seale also opened up Roam Fine Goods in Preston Royal Center. She works with her husband, Johnny. Her favorite spot in the neighborhood is White Rock Stables, where she keeps her horse.
