An in­sid­ers pills the Ton the lo­cal beauty in­dus­try( page 37), so shh, we didn’t tell you any­thing!

As with ev­ery Au­gust is­sue, we also bring you 30 CLEO Hot Shots who are man­i­fes­ta­tions of t heir dreams, and liv­ing lessons on how im­por­tant it is to think out­side the square. A reg­u­lar ac­count­ing de­gree was used f or a tech biz up­grade. The old busi­ness school “prof­its over peo­ple” ad age was turned right around, to put hu­man lives first. And in the# Me Too world, it’ s re­fresh­ing to know that we can still have a young woman in the Di­rec­tor’ s chair. Read the sto­ries of even more in­cred­i­ble women on page 72.
