Rebecca Minkoff, Fashion Designer

Today’s guest needs no introduction. If you’re a female under the age of 30 and you like fashion, you probably own something from this designer. She is Rebecca Minkoff, global fashion powerhouse. It’s her first podcast ever and she is full of amazing, insightful, relevant advice for all listeners, not just the women out there, but all aspiring entrepreneurs because guess what? She wasn’t always Rebecca Minkoff, the fashion mogul.

Plus, what does she likes to do in her spare time when she gets a free 30 seconds?
