Since then, it has grown to reach 2 million readers per day, and Grace’s influence has only has soared to new heights, including, in 2011, the publication of her first bestselling book, Design*Sponge at Home. Now, Grace debuts her widely-anticipated second book, In the Company of Women, which profiles over 100 entrepreneurial women of all ages, races, backgrounds, and industries. In these pages, these inspirational and creative women offer the keys to success, highlight the importance of everyday rituals, and dispense advice for the next generation of women entrepreneurs and makers. Rounding out the book are hundreds of lush, original photographs of these women movers and shakers in their work spaces.
