Eileen Gittens: Founder, President & CEO, Blurb.com
Eileen never stopped photographing since her days studying photography, and that’s how Blurb got started. She wanted to create a beautifully designed and produced photo essay book – something that looked like a book you’d buy at the bookstore – but she only needed 40 copies.
This turned out to be remarkably painful, expensive, and time-consuming – and she thought that was just wrong.
So she founded Blurb.
Eileen’s favorite quote: “First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win.” (Gandhi)
