Why Martha Stewart?

She’s had an incredibly successful career in so many ways. She started off in modeling (fitting, right?) and then moved to stockbroking. That’s when everything changed, according to NPR.

[She joined stockbroking to] open her own catering company, where she developed her own recipes. Those would be the foundation for her first book, Entertaining, which was published in 1982. Her magazine, Martha Stewart Living, launched in 1990.
