It’s a thing of joy for us when females achieving pinnacles in business that even their male counterparts haven’t reached. From Oprah Winfrey, Jessica Alba, The Olsen Twins among several others, we’ve been able to glean a few words of advice from this successful women.
For #MondayMotivation today, we focus on these few women who have changed the way women should aspire and hustle for lack of a better word to use. We take a few words as spoken from them over the years and hope that we can apply this in our own daily empire-building mission.
Listen To Your Instincts
While speaking to students t the Stanford Graduate School of Business, Oprah Winfrey, C.E.O of the Oprah Winfrey Show inspired with these words.
“If I were to put it in business terms of to leave you with a message, the truth is I have from the very beginning listened to my instincts. All of my best decisions in life have some because I was attuned to what really felt like the next right move for me.”
Step By Step Till You Get To The Top
Tory Burch has constantly rejected being called “an overnight success.” In an interview with Levo she explains her displeasure with that term.
“I guess that made sense, if you didn’t count the 20,000 hours we put into building the business up to that day, or the combined half-a-million hours we all spent learning the industry in the years before that.”
With these word, Burch teaches us that while we may live in an instant world, nothing can replace hard work, tenacity, and of course patience.
