Julie Macklowe, a former Vogue magazine ‘It Girl,’ was a hedge fund manager for 12 years before she broke into the beauty industry.

OSEA founder and ‘chief seaweed officer’ Jenefer Palmer comes from a long line of healers. In fact, her grandmother was one of the first female chiropractors in the world, who always told her granddaughter, Always read the label. She took the advice to heart when working as spa director at Murrieta Hot Springs, which at the time was a premier holistic destination spa. But what she found came as a surprise: Many of the most expensive products used inexpensive and sometimes dangerous synthetic ingredients. Palmer now uses 100 percent natural marine-based organic ingredients in her products, which are carried at luxury spas around the world.

How do you make it to the top? “Find what you’re passionate about,” says Moneta Group’s Nancy Georgen. “You can be good at something, but if that’s not what you want to do, it doesn’t matter how good you are. You’re not going to get the satisfaction and you’re not doing the best you can.” We talked to three ladies who learned this by heart early on, and as a result they’ve reached their dreams.

We are so fortunate in St. Louis to have such diverse and remarkable architecture. Present architectural talents have added their mark to our landscape, but for this feature, I want to go back in time when our fair city was experiencing growth that rivaled other great cities across the nation: The late 1800’s reflected a time when our country was being built by the ingenuity and hard work of American men and women who embraced the industrial age. Part of what that success brought to the captains of industry and finance was a luxurious European lifestyle that had not been enjoyed at this level on our shores prior to that time.
