Rules to live by from Veuve Clicquot’s former CEO

There’s just something about the French and their style. One of the most fascinating women in the business world is Mireille Guiliano, best selling author and former president/CEO of Champagne Veuve Clicquot.

Mireille is one of the few women who have reached the top echelon of the wine and spirits as well as luxury goods industry, and has been called a champion of women in business. She works with groups promoting business opportunities and education for women and credited with growing Champagne Veuve Clicquot’s top image. Mireille strategy and business sense helped Veuve Clicquot’s market share in America grew from less than one percent to more than 25 percent. How impressive.

Mireille has written books around her experiences giving tips through lively stories and helpful hints, she gives women (and a few men) the practical advice they need to make the most of work without skimping on all the other good things in life.  A sought-after guest on radio and television in the USA and abroad, Mireille has appeared on Oprah, The Today Show, CBS’ The Early Show, NBC’s Dateline, and CNN.
