Based in Katonah, New York, where she helms her 156-acre Bedford Farm, Martha, the author of 99 books, an Emmy award winner, and America's first self-made female billionaire, founded Martha Stewart Living in 1990 and Martha Stewart Weddings in 1995.
Martha shares how she turned her passion for all aspects of everyday living—cooking, gardening, entertaining, decorating, collecting, and crafting—into a thriving business empire that has made her a household name around the world.
