Building a brand from scratch, especially in a competitive market like the beauty industry, is no easy task. Carolyn Aronson, owner and CEO of It's a 10 Haircare, discusses the trials and tribulations she went through founding her first business, and how that experience prepared her to build It's a 10 Haircare into one of the most unique brands in beauty.

Host David Meltzer and Carolyn talk about the challenges of being a woman in a (surprisingly) male-dominated industry, and how she has used her lifelong passion for hair to become one of the leading businesswomen in the fashion and beauty industry.
