By Invitation Only.

On Monday evening, I found myself surrounded by many entrepreneurs and fashionistas in a suite at the W Hotel, all of us there for the same Gilt-y pleasure, to meet Gilt Groupe co-founder, Alexis Maybank, at her book signing. Alexis' thoughtful words brought to life the story of Gilt Groupe's extraordinary growth (from 5 people to 900 since 2007), the first sale from, of all places, Missouri, and a personal reflection of what it's like to work side-by-side with a close friend. I've already finished By Invitation Only finding myself laughing out loud, but more important, walking away feel truly inspired.
