Choice Books - Business: The Glitter Plan

I read as many books as possible from people who have started their own businesses - even if one of them is married to John Taylor from Duran Duran. How rude of her.

Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor were the two women behind Juicy Couture, the home of the velour tracksuit (eew) and the fun handbags and accessories (yum). 

This tells the story of how they started, the building of a multi-million dollar business and the eventual sale to Liz Claiborne in 2003 for $250 million dollars. As you do. *gulp*

If you like reading this kind of thing - this has lots of bullet-point individual pages listing for example, retail terms, their top tips for starting businesses and 'surviving the transition to corporate management' - something that Jo Malone could relate to (if you listened to her Desert island Discs last week). 

The Glitter Plan is available on for all different kinds of prices depending on the format you want.

It also contains pictures of John Taylor and Anthony Kiedis. #bonus 


  1. John Taylor was and will always be my favorite.

  2. Thank you for mentioning this - I don't usually listen to DID but I just caught it online and found it very moving. Have a lot of respect for Jo after hearing what she had to say.

  3. Have you read Anthony Kiedis Scar Tissue autobiography? fascinating read.
