I recently had the honor of interviewing Arian Simone Reed: CEO of Arian Simone Enterprises. You might have seen her on MTV, E!, VH1 or in Essence magazine. Not only is Arian a celebrity publicist, she is a well-known lifestyle entrepreneur. Having founded Fearless magazine, and The Socialite Beauty Bar, she is also the authoress behind two e-books 7 Fearless Secrets to Success and So You Want To Be A Celebrity Publicist, 5 Things You Need To Know! She even has her own line of beauty products called The Ester Experience.
And yet what I found most admirable about this fearless lady is that even though she is busy juggling all of these different endeavors , Arian always finds time to give back to the community; starting with The Fearless Girls Club – a program aimed at empowering today’s youth to overcome their fears and live their dreams. Having overcome trials such as homelessness on her road to success, her story is truly an inspiration for all!
