It reads as if the author hung a flyer in her local Starbucks that read "female artists meet me here at 8pm". The artists she gathered all seem similar. What differs is what inspires them. But it's quickly overshadowed in their artsy harmony. I miss the diversity this book could've offered. I'm an artist. I love my creative space. I couldn't wait to walk through these artists spaces. But, page after page, I was so bored and uninspired. Apr 12, Angela rated it really liked it Shelves: s-management-and-business , s-biographies , s-building-remodeling-renovati , s-arts-and-crafts.
Professional crafters and creators share their inspirational studios. It was amazing, however, to see the likeness of style the author chose to populate her book, which conveniently gave it symmetry and ease of compilation. Fun, nonetheless. So inspiring to pursue whatever your passion is, mine is quilting. Aug 16, Roxani rated it really liked it Shelves: read-in A beautiful book that will make you want your own studio.

Remarkable People We Overlooked in Our Obituaries
What were two priceless take-aways you learned at Harvard and at home that help guide your business? That perspective has been a foundational part of my management style. I am proud that we have attracted the best talent and when I touch base with them I find those things and highlight them. Of course there are growth opportunities and improvement areas, but the truth is, I believe that we are accomplishing small miracles every day that amount to creating a major movement in ecommerce together.
As would be expected, we learned the core concepts of throughput time and utilization. Though I do not over see the logistics part of our business, the concepts have framed my thinking around allocating resources, communication flow, the various handoffs and load balancing.
How did Birchbox go from start-up to dominant force in the beauty industry — in just 2 years? Was timing part of your strategy? Katia: I still think of us as a start up because we are two years old and always looking for ways to reimagine our processes to accomplish our big vision—define and lead in discovery retail. But yes, we have grown and the great fortune of rapid adoption in just two short years. I always come back to the same answer: step by step, brick by brick… I often describe this experience as building the road beneath you, right before you take the next step yes, often I describe it as a road over an abyss.
What was your inspiration, and were you thinking multi-tiered from inception? Katia: We came up with the idea because the above is what solved the problem that we were trying to address—how can you sell someone a beauty product for the first time ever, online? Beauty is such a category that requires touch, try, smell before you are ready to become a customer of that product. Therefore online presents an inherently hard channel for first time purchase.
So we designed the business to model what we felt was core to discovery of new product. That is how we arrived at this multi tier business model.

I waited with patience and purpose for five hours to fill our family transport with gas. But five hours on a line means no bathroom. Plus, no heat because I had to conserve gas while I waited.
Plus, frustrated women fighting over positions in the line, literally. It was clear that we mostly women all had people waiting for us back home that needed us. We were women on the edge — all in need of gas.
It was a scene from Mad Max. I normally fill up twice every week, and sometimes spend a bit more to have someone help me pump. Hurricane Sandy has left us without homes and loved ones and only now do each of us truly understand how convenient our lives have been. Would voting prove more difficult than pumping? Once gas had been taken care of, I had to find a poll before it was too late. Signs had been blown around, and I was confused. From her third floor window, an older lady was directing me. She was tapping the glass and pointing with wild hands towards the entrance, around the corner.
Once I was on track, she gave me the thumbs-up and the universal sign of determination, the tightly clenched fist. I felt our collective effort. Young mothers with babies, older people, poor people, crippled, gay, straight, Carribean and Jewish all waiting to vote. Once again, convenience was not even a consideration. We all waited with patience and purpose for hours to re-ellect our President, Barack Obama. I was proud of myself and everyone around me.
Once home, I did what my parents had done years before…PapaBear and I talked politics for hours over dinner and wine. With our kids surrounding us and inserting their own, very clear opinions into the conversation, we huddled around the television, watching and waiting. The election of our President, Barack Obama was a family-clan-crew-neighborhood-we-the-people type of movement. But either way, stay with your eyes open. It will serve you well! Never before have I seen such changes in the way we live. Our spending habits, lifestyles, moods, moral — culture in general has taken a distinct turn.
At Georgia, we try to always read the writing on the wall, understand the spiritual climate and then be as nimble as possible. Yes, always pursue happiness.
