Published on: Mar 21, 2018fb-roundtwitter-roundemail-round

Pinch us, please. We sat down with Sara Blakely, aka the no. 1 person we've looked up to since the day we started theSkimm. She's the Founder and CEO of Spanx -- the billion-dollar shapewear company that she built off an idea and $5,000 in savings. She also started the Sara Blakely Foundation to help women in education, entrepreneurship, and the arts. Oh, and very recently, she joined us as a minority investor of theSkimm. Like we said: pinch us.
