About Simply Inc:
In 2012, founder Sarah Boyd created Simply Inc. as an agency specializing in events and brand collaborations. Soon after, she noticed a missing link between people trying to make their way in the fashion and beauty industries and those leading the fashion and beauty industries. She saw the opportunity to connect these two stylish and driven groups by creating events that would bring together key tastemakers to share, inspire and educate anyone who was interested in hearing about their thoughts and experiences. As it turns out, a lot of people wanted to hear what our chic and knowledgeable panelists had to say. And thus, Simply Stylist was born. In 2014, Simply Digital Network was created to assist celebrity bloggers navigate the digital space and monetize their blogs. www.simply-inc.com | @Simply
