Billion-Dollar Inventor Joy Mangano Rebuilt Her Life Thanks to This Simple Idea — And You Can, Too

Adds Mangano in this week’s How Success Happens podcast. “No matter how old you are you can rediscover your life,” she says. “We forget we have the right to have a voice. You have the right to get what you ask for. And if you say nothing, you’re going to have zero percent chance to fix it.”

Why You Need a Personal Brand and How to Build it on Social Media

Become a master storyteller.

Don’t just randomly post to your social media. It should be like a movie with a continuing plot that evolves. There’s a start that has a strong and interesting hook, and then over a year on your Instagram or Twitter, you will be telling a story that continually evolves but also connects to past posts.

Bobbi Brown’s Guide to “the Brooklyn of New Jersey,” Home to Her New Hotel

Bobbi Brown cozy in the library of her hotel, the George Inn.

Makeup mogul Bobbi Brown doesn’t do the expected. The day after she left her eponymous cosmetics brand in late 2016, she was on to her next project: opening a boutique hotel. The property (debuting this March) is located not, as you might think, on a cobblestoned street corner in downtown Manhattan. Instead, it’s just under an hour away in the quaint town of Montclair, New Jersey.
