Our Favorite Things: 2016 Geenies

Our 2016 Geenies represent the best of US: bold, creative, empowering, supportive, and brilliant. Beyond achieving success in their respective industries, each Geenie offers a model of self-actualization and ideas for personal growth that we all can apply. Their models of self-caring while pursuing excellence trigger us to center ourselves and ignite us to dream and achieve bigger. We are beyond grateful; and to celebrate our Geenies, we commissioned our resident illustrator Kim Salt, to create an original portrait of each woman. See Kim's beautiful work below:    March Geenie: Lauren Maillian Thank you Lauren Maillian for being our first Geenie and truly encompassing #BlackExcellence. Lauren, we are proud of all that you've accomplished and inspired by your redefining path! Look forward...

Disrupt yourself!  That’s right, author and speaker Whitney Johnson delved deep into how companies disrupt, and how we harness the same power to disrupt our personal and professional lives for the better.

INSIDE THE OCTOBER BOX

Dear GeenieBox Sisters, Hi. I’m thrilled to be sharing this time and part of my journey with you. For me, “The Beauty of Breaking Through” is an equally personal and professional theme, one that represents where I am (and you are) today, but serves as a reminder of our resilience. I hope to perhaps be a small spark in what ignites and inspires you to be disruptive in your own life, to perhaps dare do something that scares you, and look amazing while doing it! To know me is to know that I always wear lipstick. I wear lipstick as an executive in the beauty industry, where I’m now in a position to help drive the change in the narrative...
