1998 New Yorker profile of Victoria Gallegos, top Prada salesperson, moved $2 million in one year. This woman could sell (very expensive) ice to (very rich) Eskimos.

I did a double take when I realized this was back in 1998. I wonder what Ms. Gallegos is up to now...

True story: One of the marketing execs I work with paid his college tuition by driving an ice cream truck in Anchorage for a few years.

shortly after leaving prada, she began working for a modeling agency, which she subsequently sued over smoking in the workplace and won more than $5million in damages.
