Bree Johnson


Bree Johnson is one of the founders of Frank Body, together with Jess Hatzis and Erika Garaerts they created Frank Body as a side project based on a beauty hack, using coffee beans as a scrub. The girls wanted to help their users obliterate their cellulite and other skin issues. It exceeded $20 million in revenue in 2015 and became super popular on Instagram due to the product’s unique ingredient; coffee.
Ground coffee beans are laced with a combination of exotic fruit and scent plant oils to create the product, but it’s really down to the marketing strategies and expertise of Bree and her two partners. The girls have described the launch as a huge risk as it involved them leaving stable positions. But by knowing their market, and using social media, Frank Body took off hugely. These women prove that by taking risks, trusting yourself, and working hard with a positive attitude can bring you success. And possibly a bigger income…

Sophia Amoruso

At twenty-two years old, Sophia was sitting in her ex-boyfriend’s apartment dreaming up Nasty Gal Vintage. Her love for vintage hoarding landed her on the Forbes’ list of Richest Self-Made Women. She was quickly dubbed a ‘fashion’s new phenom’. And even though Nasty Gal declared bankruptcy and Sophia distanced herself from the brand, she’s still killing it.

The focus is now spent on her other major project; #GIRLBOSS, which you’ve

probably heard of by now. Sophia turned her experience into a New York Times Best Seller, which is soon to be a Netflix show. Sophia as a strong business woman, who actually inspires other women to own it. Proceeds from the publication #GIRLBOSS have gone to create the Girlboss Foundation. It has delivered $90,000 in grants to female creative entrepreneurs. Girlboss is a platform that encourages and motivates other women to be their own boss, and it showcases women that are.

Fanny Moizant

Fanny’s journey began through a passion for designer clothes. Her only option was to sell the clothes she bought, and use that money to buy new ones. Great idea right? She saw how bloggers were trading clothes and decided to make a platform that was safe and trustworthy! She now makes it her business to encourage other women to shed their old designer splurges and pass on the sentiment.

Coming from a family of entrepreneurs she always knew she wanted to work in fashion. So in 2009, with the other co-founders, she founded Vestiaire Collective. And because of her business background and clever strategies she has distinguished herself from her competitors. Her website boasts a community of 6 million people, and is growing by the thousand daily. Vestiaire remains quiet about their revenue, but it is expected they take around $280 million.

One of the greatest lessons to learn from Fanny’s story is not to worry if someone else shares your idea, one of the co-founders actually wanted to start up a similar website before she came to him with her idea, so it wasn’t unique, but she made herself invaluable to him and the growing team!
