In the 10th grade, I somehow ended up in the principal’s office, and I remember him asking me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I told him an entrepreneur.
I never in a million years would have guessed I’d be doing what I’m doing now. (At that point in my life, the only vegetables I was familiar with were tomato sauce and french fries.) Now, I can’t imagine doing anything else.
But, even back then, I always knew I wanted to be a woman who worked. And travel the world, wear beautiful clothes, and marry my own Prince Charming.
I have made a conscious effort to be fulfilled in all areas of my life: business, relationships, home, fun, style, travel…
Which is why I’m so proud to support Ivanka Trump in her new #WomenWhoWork initiative. I love that she is highlighting female entrepreneurs and business women who are thoroughly modern: they are juggling a meaningful career, a family, and a social life, and looking damn good while they’re at it!
I love encouraging people to go after their dreams and live the life they want to live just as much as I love encouraging people to eat healthier.
When I was in college, I saw an ad for a Diane von Furstenburg perfume in a magazine, and scribbled across the page it said: “Be the Woman You Want To Be.” I ripped it out, hung it on my fridge, and that sentence has become my mantra.
Ivanka asked me to make a video with my “extended business card,” highlighting all of the other things that I do that make me the modern woman who I am, so here it is.
If you’re a woman who wants more from life (and why not??) head on over to IvankaTrump.com and join the conversation. You will love all of her well-thought out and useful content, beautiful style, spot-on advice, and overall inspirational vibe.
You can have the life you want, you just have to create it.
If you’re a Woman Who Works leave a comment below and tell me what your passion and “extended business card” is. And if you’re super inspired, make your own video like mine, tag it with #WomenWhoWork, upload it to social media, and join the conversation! When you shine your light, it allows others to do the same.
