Lauren O’Brien, Dana Barrett and Kelie Charles

Kelie Charles, Founder of Double Dutch Dolls, joined Dana in the studio to talk about the gap in the market for multicultural dolls.  She shared the inspiration for her new line of  books and dolls, and talked about what it takes to execute a startup.

Lauren O’Brien, Founder of Embraced, also joined us to talk about Battle of the Burgers and the charity it supports.

Both were great fun and know what it means to take the next step with an idea.
