1) What inspired you to become an entrepreneur? From an early age, I always wanted to be in control of my own destiny and starting your own business allows for that.
2) What skills helped you translate your passion for retail into a multi-million dollar business? I built my business by having perseverance toward my goal, the patience to make it happen, and not looking for a no.
3) How do you identify and select new business projects to pursue? When considering new projects, I always evaluate the product, the people involved, and the demographic it’s trying to reach.
4) Have you ever had a mentor who had a tremendous impact on you as a leader? Yes, my mother.
5) What is one lesson from your book Gold Standard that high school girls can apply to their own lives? There are several lessons girls can apply to their own lives including, follow your dreams, stay true to your convictions, and always look for a yes.
Thank you to Katlyn Grasso for the interview, and for inspiring and empowering girls and women!
Love this article from Carina O., a GenHERation member, on the #IAmSoGal Summit, where I spoke about business and fashion during a Fireside Chat.

From the article:
During a long first month of my senior year, I began to get caught in a routine and schedule on the weekends with loads of homework, lack of sleep, and no social life. While I could have stayed home for another weekend, I instead
opted to attend the SoGal Startup Bootcamp in Los Angeles alongside GenHERation Founder & CEO Katlyn Grasso and two other local high school girls, Rebecca K. and Jessica A., on Sept. 25 and 26. The two-day event touched on topics of entrepreneurship, technology, and diversity – three topics that I am passionate about – but most importantly, the event was targeted towards women.
