Marissa Carter is one of modern Ireland’s most successful businesswomen. She’s the brains behind the award-winning Cocoa Brown brand, and in only a few short years, this former salon owner has gone from a woman with an idea to one of the beauty world’s most admired self-made women. In 2013, Carter won Start-up of the Year at the IMAGE Businesswoman of the Year ceremony – the nomination form for this year’s awards is HERE – and in the past three years she’s conquered Ireland, the UK and made a splash stateside (remember when her products got the Kylie Jenner seal of approval?) And she’s only getting started; now she’s gearing up to launch her very own range of beauty products.
Carter spoke to IMAGE about how she felt entering the IMAGE Businesswoman of the Year awards and said she was “thrilled to get such prestigious recognition” and was on hand to offer advice to any woman about to do the same thing. Watch below and remember that this year, it could be you:
