Women on Top: Barbara Kavovit – Tool Designer (2006)
Barbara Kavovit designed a breakout line of tools for women that are sexy, fun and, above all, they work. Since a young age, Barbara always loved building things. After college, she saw an opportunity and created a small repairs service. That operation soon blossomed into a million dollar construction business. All was running well until 9/11 shut down her business and changed her life.
Being determined and self-reliant, this set-back was not the end of her story. She gathered all of her savings and created a line of tools designed for women and wrote books encouraging women to take charge of home repairs. Now, she is a fixture on morning talk shows and is AOL’s home improvement expert.
