5 on friday: miriam jesselli

There are more women entrepreneurs than ever before, in a wide variety of industries. As two boss ladies ourselves, we decided to start a series of interviews with female business owners. Every Friday, we will be asking a fellow #girlboss five simple questions about business, the passion behind her brand and what motivates her to get out of bed in the morning.

We invite you today to meet our very first woman up at bat, our longtime business partner, friend and client, Miriam Jesselli of BUCO Handbags.

years in business | 9 years

1 | When did you consider yourself a success? My second year in business.
