Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
It has not been an easy road but every day, I learn something new from my experiences, good and bad.

The best advice I could give to anyone is to never give up on you. Stay true to who you are and your vision. And remember your journey is different from the next person’s… why because it’s yours. No two people have the same journey.

Please tell us about The Lark Experience and Revel By Julian Lark.
I’m a celebrity wardrobe stylist, fashion expert, luxury boutique and cosmetics owner.

I stay watering my own grass and not worrying about other people’s lawns. I excel because every day, I strive to outdo myself and I don’t mind sharing the jewels that I have learned with the next person. I know there is enough out here for us all to eat. The work I put in now, I put in for my future.

Do you think there are structural or other barriers impeding the emergence of more female leaders?
I believe social media is one of the biggest barriers today. Social media and a lot of the top influencers don’t show the up and coming of a true picture of what it takes to be an entrepreneur or leader. We only get to see the good. When those people coming up behind us need to see some of our pitfalls and hear that they are not alone in some of the struggles they go through.
