Babe Watch - Sarah Ordo
As a Boss Babe myself, I have the unique pleasure of meeting so many amazingly talented and inspiring women. I always find myself in awe of just how much they are doing in their lives to make an impact. When I met Sarah Ordo, she BLEW MY FREAKING MIND. Let's see if I can sum up all of her accomplishments in shortened form...
Sarah is the owner of the award-winning 24 Luxe Beauty Brand in Detroit and is currently working on opening her 24 Luxe Beauty Bar in Michigan hopefully by this summer. In addition, Sarah is a self-published author of nine books and counting and has product lines that coincide with some of her publications. Sarah is well-known on Instagram and in the online community, hosting a YouTube channel, a podcast called Her Best Fucking Life, and online courses and masterminds that her teach and empower women to succeed and grow. And, as if she weren't busy enough, Sarah started a series of women's events called Her Best Fucking Brunch that features local female businesses and female speakers that enable women to come together for learning, support, and, of course, inspiration.

Why Did You Decide To Start Your Business?
I should have known I was meant to be an entrepreneur! I was selling custom rainbow and striped MySpace-esque hair extensions on eBay by the time I was 17 years old! I went to college and got a degree to teach Preschool, but ultimately still craved to make my own mark on the world! I wanted to be my own boss and have the freedom to live a life I loved every day! When I got sober in 2015, it led to my self-publishing my first book. Everything really took off after that first book!
