    Francesco Clark defines family not only by DNA, birthed Clark's Botanicals in a hospital bed, and he speaks Italian.

    Francesco Clark defines family not only by DNA, birthed Clark's Botanicals in a hospital bed, and he speaks Italian.

    Francesco Clark was 24 years old with a promising career at Harper’s Bazaar when his entire world was turned upside-down. On June 1, 2002, Francesco dove headfirst into a swimming pool and crashed into the bottom. He became paralyzed from the neck down. Surgeons told his parents, “he will never breathe, talk or move his arms (on his own) - and forget about his legs.” 
    His skin, now permanently impacted, was prone to breakouts, dry patches, and redness, creating a perfect storm of ongoing ailments. Francesco enlisted the help of his father, a medical doctor trained in homeopathy, to heal his skin. 
    After five years and 78 formulations, the first Clark’s Botanicals product was born. Today Clarks Botanicals Company is valued in the 10s of millions and available on Amazon, Space NK,  Goop, and more.
    Francesco is also a national ambassador for the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, helping to fund for the care and the cure of people with spinal cord injuries

    Jeanine Lobell has her own hot dog stand, says Gen Z isn't lazy, and will tell you when you're doing a good job, now.

    Jeanine Lobell is a celebrated makeup artist and founder of Stila Cosmetics. Stila was first-to-market with recycled packaging, the use of illustrations, and girl power culture. As one of the first indie makeup brands, the company had unprecedented growth, resulting in a bidding war among industry giants and ultimate sale to Estée Lauder. Jeanine was then recruited as Creative Director to revamp the Kevyn Aucoin Beauty line. 
    Lobell has continued to focus on entrepreneurial opportunities along with her makeup artistry. She is still very much a fixture on campaign and editorial photoshoots, in addition to working with an impressive roster of celebrity clients for red carpet events. She has worked with many renowned actors like Natalie Portman, as well as Michelle Williams, Cate Blanchett among others.


    Most recently Lobell launched Neen, a new makeup subscription line that we will get into later on. 


    Jeanine welcome In My Chair.
