Blake Lively juggles many roles in her day-to-day life. She’s an actress, an artisan entrepreneur (LOL), and a new mom/full time breastfeeder. But she’s not ready to rest on her laurels. No, Blake is setting her sights even higher: she wants to attend Harvard Business School… you know, when she actually gets some time.
From Stylist UK:
As a woman in business do you think there’s a similar lack of representation?There are a lot of women in business, but they don’t get enough opportunities. If you look at the facts, women spend the most on e-commerce sites, yet less than 30% of the companies that venture capitalists fund are female-driven, even though female-run companies are the most successful. Women connect with other women. So why are we are not looking at the numbers?
Would you say you are naturally business-brained? I love it but I think it’s more innate for me; it’s not something I went to college for. My mum is someone who faced a lot of obstacles but never took no for an answer and she showed me the only person who can limit you is yourself. Business is also about generosity. Entrepreneurs helping each other out. People starting their own companies who could be competitors are actually saying to me, “This is a mistake I made and this is how you can do it better. Meet my technology officer who can teach you how to build your technology platform.” You realise there is room for everyone, as long as you work hard enough.
Finally, what else is left to achieve? I have a dream to go to Harvard Business School and one of these days I will do that… in my spare time!
Can’t hate on a woman who wants to educate herself. I mean, I feel like there’s some kind of douchey subtext here, but if there is, I’m choosing to ignore it and give her a pat on the back.
Look, guys – I have a confession to make. I know Blake Lively is totally obnoxious and kinda not worth taking seriously, but I can’t help but like her in a lot of ways, particularly because they asked her who her favourite chef is and she said Nigella Lawson and Heston Blumenthal, which are two of mine :( :( :( What does this all mean?
