The Purple Room
This idea incubator percolated in an organic fashion. Mention what you do and ask how you can build it into a brand or project, and Stephanie comes up with an idea. Clients, friends, and strangers at parties—ask her how to exploit their brand and she comes up with a list of ideas. One client wanted a book proposal, but Stephanie accidently created and sold the idea as a reality show (and landed an Emmy nomination in New York in the process).
