Finding Success In Beauty: Lisa Price

“I was not born with a lot of money. I’m just an average woman who listened to the universe when it told me to believe in myself. I hope that others will learn from my story and find the beauty in themselves. It is inherent in all of us.”

Lisa Price is the epitome of stick-to-it-ive-ness. She knew she had hit on something great when she founded Carol’s Daughter, a line of homemade beauty products in 1993 in her Brooklyn kitchen, with just $100. Price then hit the pavement, selling her products at church flea markets and street fairs, reports Essence. Today Carol’s Daughter is a celebrity favorite and a multimillion-dollar firm.
