Mary Lou, you are not in charge of everyone else’s happiness. Here’s what I’ve learned. When you speak your heart and make changes and choices that are right for you, people understand.

-Mary Lou Quinlan, What I Know Now About Success

What would you write in a letter to your younger self? Author and speaker Ellyn Spragins asked that question in her newest book, What I Know Now About Success: Letters From Extraordinary Women To Their Younger Selves, and one of the women she asked was our very own CEO and founder Mary Lou Quinlan. In an event hosted by New York Women in Communications (NYWICI), Ellyn moderated as Mary Lou, along with Linda Kaplan Thaler, CEO & Chief Creative Officer of The Kaplan Thaler Group and President of  NYWICI, and Trish McEvoy, makeup artist and founder of Trish McEvoy Ltd, read their letters aloud in a moving presentation, then answered questions from the audience.

What I Know Now About Success includes letters from even more amazing businesswomen and dynamic personalities such as Barbara Corcoran, Cynthia Rowley, Bobbi Brown, Suze Orman, and Diane von Furstenberg.
