Grace Bonney, Founder of Design*Sponge

I received a book shortly after the election results that put a big smile on my face…I really needed it. The book is In the Company of Women. You have to read this and it’s a great gift. The author Grace Bonney profiles 100 female entrepreneurs of all ages, races, backgrounds and industries to share their practical and inspirational advice. It’s a gorgeous book with outstanding photography, a book that you’ll want to proudly display in your home.

Grace is a small business owner, herself. She’s the founder of Design*Sponge, a daily website for the creative community that she launched back when she was only 23 years old. Today, it reaches nearly 2 million people per day and has been dubbed “Martha Stewart Living for millennials.”

In the interview we discuss:

  • Why she took a bit of a departure from her business to write this book.
  • The importance of owning your success, your responsibilities, your power, no matter how hard it can be sometimes. As a female and entrepreneur, why this recurring theme rang true for so many of her book’s profiles.
  • And why Grace says she’s content with not having a lot of money.

Four years ago I wrote and stated in public that I “inadvertently” became the breadwinner in my relationship. Like, I didn’t intend for it to happen. I just married for love and…welp, here I am!

But that is so far from the truth.
