Burberry CEO inspirational article

"she's all talent and no pretension."
You have to see it to believe it is my personal take on dreamers achieving their dreams.   I'd like to share an article linked by a friend from wherelse but Facebook regarding the Burberry CEO Angela Ahrendts and how she balances work and life "Earning Her Stripes". As young women, despite your career goals, I believe it's really important to learn from others who have gone before us. Of course reading it, I didn't understand everything because I've never been a part of high fashion nor work with such luxurious brands, but it's a good read (6 pages I believe)! Even if we read about a woman who achieves amazing success and has done incredibly things but we do not know of her company or brand, it doesn't motivate or inspire us as much. However, since this is vice versa ( I think a lot of people know of Burberry), it impacts us more and we think to ourselves, "hey, I can do that!" She grew up in Indiana and made it to where she is without things being handed to her because "she's all talent and no pretension."
  •  "[...] knowing the market, the customer, and perfectly anticipating demand" is how she created her success with the multibillion dollars brand

  • "And if the end result is that someone, somewhere winds up believing that they can do something out of the ordinary, well then you've really made it."--

March 15,2011 marks my very first makeup tutorial "15 minutes for every makeup." ** I know it is not anything exciting for others, but I will remember this first tutorial, my contribution to the YouTube community. Makeup for me was a medium because I thought I could sell them, but like a relationship, now I like to play and practice with them because it's my escape. It helps me to bring something else within me I didn't think I had, creativity, courage, and it's a reminder to not limit yourself to who you think you can be. I hope in a couple of years, my skills will be a lot better and I can help give better makeovers and help bring out the outerbeauty that others may not see in themselves, just as it did for me.
