I am a long time fan of all things Tupperware. If I had extra time to my name, I'd absolutely love becoming a Tupperware consultant. So I was absolutely thrilled to dig into Life of the Party: The Remarkable Story of How Brownie Wise Built, and Lost, a Tupperware Party Empire by Bob Kealing
Sadly, Wise did not ultimately reap the rewards of her success. She was fired by Earl Tupper under murky circumstances; Tupper walked away with a fortune and Wise disappeared.
Originally published as Tupperware Unsealed by the University Press of Florida in 2008â€”this book has also been optioned by Sony Pictures, with Sandra Bullock attached to star as Brownie Wise!
Brownie Wise paved the way for the women entrepreneurs that followed. Her story is significant, and sad, while also inspirational. She truly worked her way up from nothing, and made a name of herself and built an empire at a time when women had limited career options.
