We are so happy to bring you this interview and yes we are fangirling again with this amazing woman as she shares how her love for dolls took her from dressing like her dolls when she was little to being project designer for Mattel. She also talks about an incredible bold move she made that most entrepreneurs are still scared to do today, that lead to getting her foot into the door of Mattel. Then how a challenging decision helped helped her to create The Prettie Girls, her move to going it all alone in creating the IamU, Uniquely Beautiful dolls and now in the world of consulting. It was truly an honor to interview this talented women, Stacey McBride-Irby.
