Women that Inspire
I watched the documentary Art & Copy a few nights ago (it's on Netflix instant watch!). It's all about the advertising world. Out of all the people they interviewed, I was most intrigued by Mary Wells Lawrence. It was her campaign that brought us the I Love NY phrase/song back in the seventies. AND she was the first woman CEO to make it onto the NY Stock Exchange board. I don't know what that means exactly, but it sounds impressive. And everything I read includes that piece of info, so I thought it was note worthy.
In the movie, she was asked what made her so successful. She responded, "I never get tired." Today, as I have a million things to do and feel totally exhausted, I keep telling myself, "I never get tired. I never get tired. I never get tired. And I LOVE NY!"
Learning about successful business women inspires me. Tina Fey is another one. Who else? Who are the women that inspire you? I'm thinking this might be a fun Babble post/slide show. I'll link back to your blog if I use yours!
