ATTENTION AMBITIOUS WOMEN
it’s time for a little Tuesday Inspiration!
Reese Witherspoon is one of the many women on our list of INSPIRING BADASS WOMEN. I could write a dissertation on the importance of Witherspoon’s career and energy. She recently was on the cover of Glamour magazine and spoke about what it means to be ambitious today. One of the reasons why she's an inspiration to us is because she created HER OWN production company and has FUNDED THREE MOVIES and PRODUCED AN EMMY AWARD WINNING SHOW. Her accolades aside, Reese Witherspoon embodies everything a successful woman and entrepreneur should have under her belt. She's persistent, kind, and ambitious.
"Run away from a man who can’t handle your ambition. Run. So many men think ambition is awesome and sexy!”
Can we get an AMEN? Don’t let anyone hold you back from letting you reach (and surpass) your goals! As women, we know that we have to work twice as hard to be taken seriously and know that there are NO handouts. As mentioned in the Glamour article, Reese asked her co-worker, Mindy Kaling if she was tired of always having to create roles for herself.
“Reese, I’ve never had anything that I didn’t create for myself.” I thought, Wow, I feel like a jerk for asking that"
(Mindy Kaling is another woman who we adore at GB) but this conversation with Mindy and Reese always reminds us that women have to work harder to create the opportunities for OURSELVES.
Ambitious women are constantly thinking of the next thing. Our brains are always running catching inspiration everywhere. It takes a real love to stand by an ambitious woman like ourselves. We're always grateful for our parents because they support our dreams and aspirations. Reach for the stars, babe!
There is so much that this world needs. There are so many injustices in this world that we want to change. Services and products that we want to create for our communities. Why let someone stop you from working towards your goal? Don't wait for someone to offer you the oppourtity. Fight for what you want. Take what is yours. Be ambitious.
