Lisa Price To Speak At Entrepreneur Power Luncheon March 26

Tuesday, February 25, 2014

The Urban League of Greater Chattanooga will host its second annual Entrepreneur Power Luncheon on Wednesday, March 26, at the Chattanooga Convention Center. Keynote speaker Lisa Price, founder and president of Carol’s Daughter, will share how she transformed her hobby of mixing up fragrances and creams at home into a multimillion dollar beauty empire. 

Ms. Price, with only $100 in cash and her own kitchen, had the simple notion that people should follow their hearts. She started building the collection that would become a "beauty revolution." Ms. Price began by selling her homespun beauty products at flea markets but then had to set up shop in her living room as demand increased for unique products like Love Butter, Hair Milk, Black Vanilla Hair Smoothie and Almond Cookie. 

Tickets for the luncheon may be purchased for $50 online thru Eventbrite - only a limited number of tickets are available.  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-urban-league-presents-the-2nd-annual-entrepreneur-power-luncheon-tickets-10513475087
