Very wonderful interview describing Jeanne Yang’s rise to success as a men’s celebrity stylist. Interesting to hear how her mother’s example of hard work and determination helped her on her path to success and breaking the glass ceiling. Jeanne shares her story in a very honest way. This podcast is great. Give it a listen.
