POV: two of my favorite CEOs/entrepreneurs

I love having the privilege of reading about the amazing people behind my favorite companies and products. I'm a huge fan of vintage e-store ModCloth and can't get enough of Tarte beauty products (remember this?), so I was thrilled to find their respective CEOs + their New Years resolutions featured in this Inc Magazine article. Check 'em out:

Susan Gregg Koger, who founded ModCloth the summer before her freshman year at Carnegie Mellon, aims to find a mentor (Me too, Susan!). She also strives to make time for daily journal entries, travel to Asia, and improve her photography skills.

Maureen Kelly, who started Tarte in a teeny, one-bedroom apartment in New York in 1999 (Happy 10 year anniversary!), will launch a limited edition line of products developed in conjunction with celebrity makeup artist Tina Turnbow. Her other resolutions include making time for her two boys and hitting the gym "even if it’s getting up an hour earlier".

Bravo to young entrepreneurs! May we continue to be inspired by them, professionally and personally.
