From Startup to Acquisition in 5 Years: How Sarah Boyd, the Founder of Simply Inc., Used Intentional Networking, Relationship Building and Pure Hustle to Create the Premier Agency for Fashion and Beauty Influencers
Sarah Pollack Boyd is the founder and 'dot connector' at Simply Stylist. A Fashion Merchandising graduate from Philadelphia University, Sarah fell in love with the world of fashion at an early age and pursued her interest throughout college and beyond. Soon after she completed her degree, Sarah discovered a need unmet by other publicists and professionals in the area; the need to connect stylists dressing their celebrity clients with desirable brands, all the while giving them the press and recognition they deserve.
Following this discovery and her passion for fashion, PR, and events, Sarah launched Simply Inc. in 2009 as an agency specializing in Public Relations, Events and Brand Collaborations. Shortly after, Sarah came up with the idea for Simply Stylist: a company that would not only focus on connecting stylists with top brands, but one that would aid in growth and development of these individuals. Sarah has singlehandedly grown the company from an idea, to a full service PR and Management company with a wide variety of talented clients on board.
Credited for her work in the world of PR by the likes of Marie Claire, HauteLook, and Forbes, Sarah is no stranger to the world of entertainment and possesses strong celebrity relationships with those in the industry. In addition to her expertise in publicity, Sarah has helped designers get their clothing onto A-list celebrities and has been featured as an expert by media outlets like Fox, E!, KTLA, and Entrepreneur Magazine, to name a few. After the success of her bi-coastal fashion panel with Simply Stylist, Sarah has expanded her brand to two new markets, Dallas and Chicago, for the coming year to continue inspiring and educating those interested in joining the industry.
