“I was 23, my son was two years old, and I decided that having only $100 in my savings account just wasn’t going to make it,” she recalled.
She climbed her way up in some of the biggest advertising agencies of the era, spent three years as partner at a moderately successful company, and later founded Icon Media Direct in 2000.
Much like her company, Nancy Lazkani became a media icon and mogul. In the first two years of its inception, she led Icon Media Direct to quadruple revenues.
