I just spent a few days in Bimini, a small island in the Bahamas, with my family and got some much needed sun. To keep me entertained I picked up this book by our friend Poppy King, the Lipstick Queen. Lessons of a Lipstick Queen is the story of how she began her lipstick company at the age of 18, and how you can turn your idea into a business. Her story is very inspirational, and pretty much she breaks down everything you need to know (even the technical stuff) about what to do with your ideas. I called my best friend in Malaysia after reading the first chapter and told her to go order it!

ooo, I read that book too! I thought it was really good. Straight forward and to the point without being pretentious.

I hope she writes more.
