Jamie has been named as one of the 2019 Forbes’ Richest Self-Made Women, 100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs and WWD’s 50 Most Powerful Women in Beauty. Get lost in inspiration as Jamie shares her incredible story of how she grew IT Cosmetics into a top-selling makeup and skincare brand, which she later sold to L’Oréal for $1.2 billion (in cash) making it their largest US acquisition to date and cementing Jamie’s legacy as the first female CEO in L’Oréal’s 100+ year history. 

We’re giving you the real behind-the-scenes of what it looks like to go all-in on your dreams and having faith in your vision, even when the world keeps telling you no. Tune in as Jamie lifts the lid on how you can start your product-based business, including actionable tips for finding the right manufacturers and business partners that will save you money and years in developing your business.
