Nancy Brinker, founder of the Susan G Komen Foundation: “Start with the end in mind.”
Nancy Brinker started the Susan G Komen Foundation in 1982 after her sister was diagnosed with breast cancer. Back then, she had just $200 and a list of potential donors. Now, it’s one of the largest cancer charities in the world. In the 40 years since the organization got started, Nancy and the foundation have raised $3 billion to help fund cancer research. On the couch, she talks to us about starting the Susan G Komen Foundation, motivating a team, and taking breast cancer from a taboo subject… to a national cause.
Christina Tosi, Founder and CEO of Milk Bar: “I dare you to work longer, and harder, and faster than me.”
Taraji P Henson: “I thought that meant I couldn’t act.”
