My inspiration for the week is Sarah Pollack Boyd because she is just down to earth and work hard to reach her goals. I came across her event, Simply Stylist which is a conference for Fashion and Beauty lovers. It will be held on October 27th in New York City. I found that she did a great job to put together this events which will featured major fashion personalities from the industry and awesome sponsors. Here is a story about herself, her inspiration and motivation:
About Sarah Pollack Boyd:
Following this discovery and her love for fashion, PR, and events, Sarah launched Simply Inc. in 2009 as an agency specializing in Events, Public Relations and Brand Collaborations. Sarah launched Simply Stylist: a company that would not only focus on spotlighting the fashion and beauty industry trendsetters, but one that would aid in growth and development of these individuals. Simply Inc. hosts fashion & beauty conferences nationwide in Los Angeles, Chicago, New York and Dallas.” – Simply Stylist
Sarah get inspired by social media and her trips overseas – “I love being up to date on all fashion news! I absolutely love to travel too, so I pull inspiration from every trip I’ve taken. This year I was lucky enough to visit Lisbon (Portugal) and Dublin (Ireland). Both polar opposites!”
Her favorite cities:
- Rome (Italy): effortless style.
- London: Chic but a little too bundled.
- California: laid back style!
What is it that drives your motivation?
Sarah:”I think you’ve either got it or you don’t. Each day I’m excited to conquer the next big hurdle!”
What is your greatest accomplishment?
Sarah: “I think it’s having the drive to leave my job and start my own company….taking that risk was HUGE. Not knowing if the company will succeed, how I’ll be paid etc. I had to believe in myself and my vision. Plus I have an amazing husband that had my back and is my biggest supporter!”
What are your goals for the future?
Sarah: I want to expand into more categories to eventually evolve into a full weekend conference rather than 1 day. I also want to expand our Simply Stylist Sessions events – to build female interaction, learning and networking here in LA and nationwide.
Her top places to shop:
She love to shop at ASOS for seasonal items. Being an entrepreneur and always working, she felt in love with online shopping ! She said: “I get giddy when my daily FAB.com email hits my inbox.” Ahah I absolutely love her!
Her favorite inspirational/motivational quotes:
– “Believe you can and you’re halfway there”
– “If you don’t build your dream, someone else will hire you to build theirs.”
Her encouraging words for you are:
“It’s never too late to go after your dream !” – Sarah
