In honor of summer, here are six women I’ve profiled before whose businesses are built around sunshine and sexiness. They are also some of my favorite reads. Enjoy!
Malia Mills–who created a thriving business doing the impossible–making women feel good about buying a bathing suit.
Carla Sersale--owner of hotel Le Sirenuse–perhaps the most exquisite slice of paradise on Italy’s Amalfi coast in Positano. (I was lucky enough to visit and have drinks with Carla last summer. How I wish I was there again!)
Sara Beltran--designer of the jewelry line, Dezso, for which she uses her biggest inspiration, the ocean, in the most atypical way.
Jun Lee–channeled her love of surf and sun into EIR, a wellness skincare line for people with active lifestyles.
Yi-Mie Truxes–everyone loves a straw bag for summer and Bembien’s have become a go-to for those in the know.
