E12: Estée Lauder - “Dedication”

As a teenager, Estée Lauder gained valuable business experience working in her father's hardware store and learned important business principles of dedication, determination, and discipline. Inspired by her uncle, a chemist who created beauty products and fragrances, Lauder realized her true calling was in beauty products. Not only did she make the world a more beautiful place, she also left behind a billion-dollar legacy.

E8: Debbi Fields - “Customer Experience”

Debbi Fields showed that anyone can make a dream business reality. As a young mother with no business experience, she was able to open her first cookie store in Palo Alto, CA in the late 1970s. She often gave cookies away, telling customers they were the most essential investment she could make. Debbi Fields based her business not on selling cookies, but on customer experience.
