I've found a common link in special, but unrelated bonds I've made over the years. All of us have grown in different arenas, yet everyone finds a way to give back. That's what I love the most...soaking up so much experience and passion for varied things when spending time with my diverse network of truly fearless female friends. The fact that they each have the desire (and actually put plans into action) to motivate others is why the respect, friendship and trust only grows stronger. I deeply admire the strength, love and evolving spirits that help me in embracing my own journey.
Each week or two, I'm going to use this space to share a little story about one of my 'peeps'. I think it will surprise you, and hopefully you'll be as moved by their paths as I am. To start, I want to brag a bit on an incredible project/concept recently brought to fruition by innovator, Jennifer Walsh.
You may not instantly recognize the name, but your buying decisions and options for all things beauty were influenced by her (original founder of the Beauty Bar). This was the first connection any of us had to specialty product lines of cosmetics and skincare...before Sephora + influx of other countless sites/stores. She was (and still is) the expert on the latest and greatest luxe products on the market.

After selling her wildly successful company to Amazon, she created another in-demand business with Behind the Brand. She's consulted for some of the biggest names in the business. The best part is that she's hands on, honest and genuinely relates to connect quality product developers with consumers.
