After high school, Marcia Kilgore moved to New York City with $300 in her
pocket and no real plan. One step at a time, she became a successful serial
entrepreneur. First, she used her high school bodybuilding experience to find
work as a personal trainer. Then she taught herself to give facials, and
eventually started her own spa and skincare line, Bliss. The spa became so
popular that it was booked months in advance with a list of celebrity
clientele. After selling her shares in Bliss, Marcia went on to start four new
successful companies: Soap & Glory, FitFlop, Soaper Duper, and Beauty Pie.

who explains how she helped develop and market The Final Straw, a collapsible
metal drinking straw.
