Interview: Designer Bonnie Marcus shares how she learned from mistakes

I love talking to other entreprenettes to see what they learned along their path to success.  Most of them have amazing stories to share – both good and traumatic! Bonnie Marcus is a great example of someone who started her stationary business on her dining room table, and has built it into a multimillion dollar business over the past 15 years.  She insists that her mistakes were her greatest learning tools and that she wouldn’t have done it any other way……well maybe a few things.

Bonnie has a huge celebrity following and has met (and been photographed with) famous women like Martha Stewart and Hillary Clinton and cool dudes like Clint Eastwood!  She has been in countless magazines, is in over 1000 stores at any given time and is mom to 3 boys!!  She is a rock star.
