"Great leaders do not expect people to simply overcome weakness but instead help people find a way to compensate for that weakness.”
This is what Allison Levine learned about leadership while on a trek to the South Pole across Antarctica. A beautiful insight, and one she shares with many listeners along her speaker circuit.
Is your interest piqued? Well it should be…
According to an article in More magazine by Paula Derrow, Levine is set to gross seven figures on the professional speaker circuit. What got her there? Well, it might have something to do with the fact that she hit “the adventure grand slam” — climbing the highest mountain on each continent and skiing to both the North and South Poles.
Now maybe your interest is “peaked” — pun intended. You can find the article on Levine in the September 2014 issue of More magazine. An inspiring story on an inspiring woman.

Hair/Makeup Artist Tamara Brown groomed Thomas Keller for his portrait in the July 2014 issue of Vanity Fair. The photograph was taken by Annie Leibovitz in the French Laundry Culinary Garden, in Yountville, California. The article was written by a “culinary comrade in-arms” Alice Waters.
Jimmy Spithill, the 34 year old Skipper of Oracle Team USA, sails in the buff for ESPN magazine and our hair/makeup artist Tamara Brown was there for the spectacle.
The sixth annual body issue captures 22 athletes doing what they do best in their birthday suits. Hands down to Jimmy though, this guy swam in the 45 degree San Francisco bay water, nude, nuff said.
Plus, with the behind the scenes gallery from each photo shoot you can catch a glimpse of Jimmy diving into the bay as well as bundled up and trying to get warm after his swim.

Elizabeth Holmes, CEO of Theranos, graces the June 12, 2014 cover of Fortune magazine.
Their headline is a perfect pun since Holmes is the inventor of a system that can run as many as 70 diagnostic tests on the amount of blood obtained by pricking a finger.Those with needle phobia can now rejoice!
We’re also thinking the Jobs-esque black mock turtleneck might just be a silicon valley sign of success since Theranos is now worth more than $9 billion. She may be out for blood but she’s bringing in the big bucks!
