    By Lindsey Guest (Founder & CEO, Beauty Army)

    Entrepreneurs are a unique breed. We’re opinionated, motivated and impatient. That’s why we get things done.

    It was the summer of 2009. Facebook was quickly digging MySpace’s grave, the iPhone 3Gs had just invaded the market, and Twitter was becoming mainstream. My business partner (who also happens to be my brother) and I were busy developing a new social network that focused on content monetization and distribution.
