CORPORATE FINANCE STRATEGIST & CONSULTANT; INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED BUSINESS LEADER; CO-FOUNDER & COO OF YES TO, INC; AUTHOR
Lance Kalish is the co-founder and "Chief Carrot Counter" of San Francisco-based Yes To, Inc. (the makers of Yes To Carrots, Yes To Cucumbers, Yes To Tomatoes, and Yes To Blueberries). At 29 years old, Lance started the company with his business partner Ido Leffler and within four years built Yes To, Inc. into one of the fastest growing skincare companies in the world, with a presence in approximately 25,000 stores in more than 24 countries including Walmart, Target, Walgreens, Whole Foods, Safeway, Sephora Europe, and numerous other global retail chains. Yes To, Inc. became an instant phenomenon in the beauty industry and has been widely recognized for its unique products, global vision, entrepreneurial spirit, and social outreach.

Yes To is now a global leader in natural beauty and was described by a leading industry organization ("Organic Monitor-2010") as "One of the major factors in changing consumer's perspective of natural products from alternative to popular." Through its rapid global expansion, Yes To is considered by many in the beauty world to have achieved the fastest global expansion and distribution ever for an independent skincare brand—25,000 stores in 24 countries, all less than four years from its initial launch.

With his corporate finance experience and expertise in international business development, Lance regularly advises and consults to boards and management on developing their international strategies, particularly in the consumer brand industry. Among other achievements, Lance was named one of the "Top 50 Australian Global Achievers" by Australian Unlimited in 2013.

In the summer of 2012, Lance and his business partner, Ido Leffler, entered into an agreement with Amazon Publishing, whose authors include Tim Ferriss, Penny Marshall and Deepak Chopra, for publication of their first business book, Get Big Fast and Do More Good: Start Your Business, Make It Huge, and Change the World, which released November 2013.
