Danielle Weisberg and Carly Zakin are the founders of The Skimm. Skimm is now two years old and their subscriber base continues to explode!
The two met while studying abroad and both had a passion for news. They started working in the corporate environment, as producers for NBC News.They started talking about doing their own thing and the rest is history!!
The two ladies are great examples of taking their knowledge and expertise from the corporate world into the world of successful entrepreneurs. The twenty something women enjoyed their work for NBC but wanted to try to insulate themselves from layoffs and the other corporate perils workers face. I had the pleasure of seeing them this morning on CNBC and signed up for their newsletter-you should too!
Good luck to all of those of you who want to become successful entrepreneurs!
