If there was a real life Cinderella Story, the life story of Beauty Bakerie CEO, Cashmere Nicole, would be it. Raised in South Bend, Indiana, she became a teenage mom at the young age of 16. Struggling to make it as a single parent, Cashmere, found herself on food stamps and section at housing. In 2011, Cashmere decided she wanted more out of life so she launched a cosmetic line called Beauty Bakerie out of her living room. While juggling parenthood, a full time nursing career, and her new company, Cashmere was diagnosed with breast cancer. Despite every obstacle that tried to break her, she remained Undefeated by beating cancer and turning her cosmetic line into a multimillion dollar beauty empire.
