Inflection Point: Reinventing Retail

Remember the days of shopping all weekend at the mall, going from store to store to store--maybe even this past weekend? One of our guests this week says that shopping has always been incredibly inefficient. But what are the alternatives--you can't possibly buy everything online...or can you?  Find out when we talk with Mariam Naficy, Founder and CEO of Minted.com, a marketplace of independent artists that crowd sources its products. And we meet Julie Bornstein, formerly the Chief Digital Officer at Sephora, and now Chief Operating Officer at StitchFix--an eCommerce clothing company making shopping more efficient with the help of accessible personal stylists.

Plus, find out Julie Bornstein's view on the value of working moms, and hear from Mariam Naficy why failure IS an option--and maybe even a good thing. 

Reinventing retail on this Inflection Point.
