It's an age-old question: How do we measure success? One person's New York Times best seller is another's Emmy Award, is another's launch of their own website, is another's night at home with their family. But no matter what definition you adhere to, we can all use a little inspiration to get moving in the right direction.
So, we did a little reaching for the stars ourselves and spoke directly with influencers who don't need much of an introduction at all. We don't mean to name drop (okay, actually we do), but if you are looking to launch the next Nasty Gal, produce the next Girls, or be the Next Big Thing, these folks can tell you exactly what it takes. Read on and let your inspiration soar.
