Written by: Carrie Wirth

Release Date: 2012-03-15

Wellington, FL- March 15, 2012- The Palms West Community Foundation welcomed fashion icon, Cornelia Guest, as speaker at their Women in Business Luncheon on Thursday, March 15th at The Players Club in Wellington. Guest imparted how she turned her passion for animals and her vegan lifestyle into a profitable business. Guest produces vegan chocolate chip cookies and has launched a new line of must-have cruelty-free handbags. Guest is the author of the upcoming book, Cornelia Guest’s Simple Pleasures: Healthy Seasonal Cooking and Easy Entertaining. Guest shared anecdotes and stories with the crowd of 100 lunch goers.

Guest shared, “I am lucky that I have found my passion because if I didn’t love it, then I could not live and breathe it everyday. When starting a business, you need to know that you are going to work so hard, because all you can do is put effort into everything.”

“I used to work every day and every weekend, but I soon realized that I couldn’t do that anymore. Now, by 7:30 every night my gadgets are turned off so that I can rest my brain and step away,” continued Guest.

Daughter of American fashion icon CZ Guest and polo champion Winston Frederick Churchill Guest, Guest was named by Donna Karan as one of the Women Who Inspire. She also serves on the Mayoral appointed Grow NYC Board. Guest is an advocate for New Yorkers for Marriage Equality and hosted their New York flagship event with Mayor Bloomberg

Guest has focused her notoriety, media attention and professional contacts to support a cause near and dear to her heart, the Humane Society of New York. Her company makes delicious, vegan cookies, and a new line of beautiful, soft faux leather, “cruelty-free” bags. Staying true to her core beliefs has been the differentiator for her success.

Guest offered some words of advise, ”Find your passion and stick with it. This is what gets me out of bed in the morning, and when you have something that motivates you so strongly. To me women are ageless, and when you have confidence and elegance, it keeps you going. Unfortunately our insecurities are ageless too, so the more confidence you have, the more enjoyable your life is going to be.”

A prize drawing included treatments at Sanda Gane European Day Spa in Wellington, Botox Treatments from Dr. Itzhak Nir of Loxahatchee and four complimentary brunch tickets for Sunday polo at International Polo Club Palm Beach.

The Palms West Chamber Foundation Women in Business Luncheon was sponsored by Phelps Media Group and The Players Club. The Luncheon series is sponsored by Iberia Bank.
