recommended ShoeCandy where Kara is Co-Founder
I have known Kara (Schwartz) Mac and Ann Merin for three years, having worked with them first as a mentor through the Westchester Just Grow One Program and subsequently as an informal advisor to their business.
These two women are a very impressive team. They have managed to work closely together, collaborating and having individual skills that complement one another, even though they are physically situated on the east and west coasts respectively. In the course of our professional relationship, I have watched as Kara and Ann have searched for a durable business model, as they tested hypothesis after hypothesis, in each instance respecting the data, and adjusting their hypothesis to honestly reflect the results of their testing. Kara and Ann have demonstrated drive, open mindedness and a consistent integrity as they pursue this journey. I highly recommend them to your program, from which I believe they would benefit as they develop the model for ShoeCandy.
