“I am inspired by women entrepreneurs like Caterina Fake (Flickr, Hunch) and Jess Lee (Polyvore) because they are not afraid to take risks and make bold moves. In my mind, that is the epitome of success – being confident in your abilities and pursuing your passion – and I admire these women for being able to do this.”
