“At every critical juncture of my life, there’s always been someone there who says, ‘There’s no way you can do this,’” Josie Maran, founder and chief executive officer of the cosmetics company bearing her name, told the audience at WWD’s Beauty Forum. “‘You can’t be a supermodel, you’re too short.’ ‘You can’t run your own company, you have no experience.’ ‘You can’t create that line of high-performance and natural products. It’s impossible.’”
Rather than listen to the naysayers, Maran took them as a challenge, becoming a successful model and in 2007 founding Josie Maran Cosmetics, a line of high-performance natural cosmetics.
