Beauty Bloggers Share Their Best Startup Tips
What's that quote about how the people you surround yourself with predict your future? If it's true, we're headed for influencer royalty because at the Create & Cultivate Beauty Summit yesterday we rubbed shoulders with and shot some of the most inspiring chicks on the web. (We also stole some of their best tips to share with you. Enjoy.)
