Get Big Fast and Do More Good
Co-founders of global beauty brand Yes to Carrots
ABOUT THE BOOK
is a guide to modern entrepreneurship and accelerated brand-building from the founders of Yes To Inc, the company behind the breakthrough natural beauty brand Yes to Carrots.
Ido Leffler and Lance Kalish, two 29-year-old Australians with very different backgrounds and skills, cofounded their company in 2006 with little more than a dream—and made it big. Yes to Carrots has become one of the biggest natural beauty brands in the world and is one of the fastest-growing skincare brands. Leffler and Kalish have accomplished it all while maintaining solid principles, investing in meaningful business relationships, giving back to the community, and still making it home in time for dinner.
The authors started their business with nothing but chutzpah and great instincts for products with potential. They’ve since made lots of great decisions and some really, really bad ones, and are ready to share their hard-won secret to success: a strong, resilient, trusting partnership coupled with a great sense of humor.
When Walgreens was founded, over 100 years ago in a one thousand square foot pharmacy, no one expected we would become a brand recognized around the world. And, that's a point that is captured so well in this insightful and masterfully written book. The "Yes To" products we carry in our stores reflect what we mean by "Doing Good while Doing Good Business." Ido Leffler and Lance Kalish have certainly set a high bar, and this book is a prime example of what hard work, vision, and a "yes" attitude can do for you and your company.
Ido and Lance have so many funny stories and practical lessons for aspiring entrepreneurs. If you're looking to start something that matters, I highly recommend that you read this book!BLAKE MYCOSKIE, Founder and Chief Shoe Giver, TOMS

Ido and Lance's book should really be titled Yes to Courage. The boys will not only show you how to be a better entrepreneur but leave you inspired with passion and confidence to make big and improbable things happen.ERIC RYAN, Co-Founder of Method
