How to know when you've arrived? It's not Snooki following you on Twitter, your mention in a rap song/your rap song, or your video making it on Tosh.0 -- it's a shout-out from the Big O herself, Oprah Winfrey.
Julia Baker, chef and owner of Julia Baker Confections, should know. The one-time statistician turned confectioner garnered a full-page profile in the April issue of O Magazine in addition to being a guest on the Oprah Winfrey Network's The Gayle King Show.
