    Just a few years ago, after a visit to Italy, Kendra Kerr decided to leap into a new adventure by re-introducing internationally-renowned beauty tool company Koh-I-Noor to the American market through a new distribution deal she orchestrated. The Italian brand was motivated to seek representation in the U.S. with a rise demand for their luxury products from American consumers. Kendra formed Koh-I-Noor Beauty U.S.A. as the official distribution channel for the products for the American market, including all marketing and sales. Since Kendra launched Koh-I-Noor Beauty U.S.A, it has been sold in stores at Aeropostale as well as select specialty stores, and online from both Amazon and currated online retailer AhaLife.

    What empowered Kendra to tackle a new market? She had the momentum of over 30 years in corporate and real estate experience. In her varied career, Kendra Kerr has climbed a mountain through sales and marketing within Fortune 50 Companies. In 2007, she launched her own real estate business under the Keller Williams brand in the Ann Arbor/Detroit market and has "never looked back."

    Kendra believes that all experience builds. And that you can bring entreprenurial spirit to your job or your life to create lasting change. Join us to hear how she is making luxury her everyday brand.

    Key Take-aways from the October lunch:

    - Taking what you learned to create new opportunities

    - Bringing the entreprenurial spirit into your everyday work

    - How even today Kendra draws on what she learned about marketing in the corporate Fortune 500 world to guide her business
