On Wednesday afternoon we welcomed writer and Hamlin parent Diana Kapp, and Megan Grassell, Founder and CEO of the clothing company Yellowberry. Ms. Kapp is the author of the recently released book Girls Who Run The World: 31 CEOs Who Mean Business.
Part biography, part business how-to, and fully empowering, this book is the perfect gift for future entrepreneurs…because you’re never too young to dream BIG! With colorful portraits, fun interviews and DIY tips, Girls Who Run the World features the success stories of 31 leading ladies of companies like Rent the Runway, POPSUGAR, and SoulCycle.
Megan Grassell is one of the CEOs featured in Ms. Kapp’s book. Ms. Grassell (now 24 years old) launched her company Yellowberry while she was still in high school.
