This week, I AM la Brand takes a look at some legendary brands, and the powerful women behind them.
Our first pick:
“Estée Lauder (/ˈɛsteɪ ˈlɔːdər/; July 1, 1906 – April 24, 2004) was an American businesswoman. She was the co-founder, along with her husband, Joseph Lauter (later Lauder), of Estée Lauder Companies, her eponymous cosmetics company. Lauder was the only woman on Time magazine’s 1998 list of the 20 most influential business geniuses of the 20th century. She was the recipient of the Presidential Medal of Freedom. She was inducted to the Junior Achievement U.S. Business Hall of Fame in 1988*.”
Born Josephine Esther Mentzer, this iconic business woman’s life and work spanned, the course of 98 years. Her works serve as a reminder of what hard work, and relentless focus can do for anyone that endeavors to succeed in his or her passion’s work. The legacy she built with her husband continues to thrive posthumously as the Estee Lauder Company.
Attributing a lot of her success to hard work, selling, selling and more selling, Estee was also known for taking calculated risks.
“I never dreamed about success, I worked for it”. ~Estee Lauder
