About Today’s Guest, Dylan Lauren:

Dylan LaurenDylan Lauren has become synonymous with luxury candy. The daughter of famed fashion designer Ralph Lauren, Dylan took a passion for candy and created Dylan’s Candy Bar, the largest candy store in the world. She also has a really cool coffee table book, Dylan’s Candy Bar: Unwrap Your Sweet Life (Amazon link). I was lucky enough to hunt down Dylan to take a break from her empire for a chat on The Rise To The Top (this was her first time on Skype…always an adventure).

In This Interview:

-A discussion on the decisions Dylan made.

-How she turned a passion into a business.

-Why she decided to go with a retail store.

-Why she uses her name in the branding.

-…and much more.
