Skimm'd from The Couch - March 28, 2018 - 25:10

Pinch us, please. We sat down with Sara Blakely, aka the no. 1 person we’ve looked up to since the day we started theSkimm. She’s the Founder and CEO of Spanx – the billion-dollar shapewear company that she built off an idea and $5,000 in savings. She also started the Sara Blakely Foundation to help women in education, entrepreneurship, and the arts. Oh and very recently, she joined us as a minority investor of theSkimm. As we said, pinch us.
