Who inspires you?

[A sketch an artist in Vancouver did of Leandra last week. Her visit there made headlines.] Who inspires you? Leandra: “I guess I’m kind of inspired by a lot of things. But of my peers, I think Emily Weiss of Into the Gloss is really awesome. She is a ball-busting businesswoman who has her head on her shoulders very firmly." Last week, I read a story in the Wall Street Journal about Edwin Land the founder of Polaroid, and that was very exciting for me. He was kind of like the Steve Jobs of the '70s - or the way we see Jobs as how he was in the '70s now - and just reading about his ideas and the fact that everything he said seems so current and fresh now was so interesting to me. I was like ‘This dude really knows what he’s talking about.’”
