(Thanks to all who entered the giveaway. This contest has concluded, and our winner is Huong Vo from Dallas, Texas.)
We were so excited to meet Dylan Lauren, CEO and founder of Dylan’s Candy Bar, and she’s Ralph Lauren’s daughter (one of our favorite brands!) She’s helped pave the way for female entrepreneurs all across America and is a role model to many women. Dylan is currently on a tour to share her book, Dylan’s Candy Bar- Unwrap Your Sweet Life, with fans and promote her new holiday candy line. The Dallas tour stopped at the Neiman Marcus store inside North Park Mall.
We had the chance to interview Dylan and get our books signed by her. And for a sweet treat to our readers, we are giving away an autographed copy of Dylan’s book!
GenPink: What’s your favorite candy from your new holiday line?
Dylan Lauren: The Giant Cookie Advent Calendar- it’s eatable!
GenPink: What career advice do you have for Gen-Y professionals?
Dylan Lauren: Have a vision, and follow your passion. Believe in what you want to do, and work hard!
GenPink: What is your favorite part of being an entrepreneur?
Dylan Lauren: I like being in control of my schedule. I also enjoy traveling and meeting new people.
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and the game Candy Land inspired Dylan to open up her unique store and become dubbed as the queen of candy.
