I have been reading a lot about her since last few weeks and its safe to say that I am totally obsessed with her. I know there are many more entreprenuors who did it all by themselves and they are all mind blowing if you ask me but this woman has something too brave for me. I have always been obsessed with Oprah but I know think I have a new obsession and the name is :Sara Blakely… ta da
I first saw her in one of the news channel long back but recently I heard her in one of the podcasts and I just loved her. Since then I have read about her from everywhere I could find an article written on her.
I want to meet her and ask her a few questions that I have so if someone knows her then please run these by her.
- Did you ever felt bad when someone stopped loving you?
- How did you react to the politics at work when you were selling Fax machines before starting Spanx.
- At any moment, did you get tired of working tirelessly on both job and creation of Spanx?
Well, I am certainly looking for her answers on these but I do feel that its almost inhuman to not get bogged down by life or feel overwhelmed at some point with your hustle and work life and family and politics and emotions BUT maybe if at end of day you are still burning your eyes and doing something rather than watching TV then maybe its the right path.
Before I go, I want you all to read her these words-
Sara’s most important tip:
“Believe in your idea, trust your instincts, and don’t be afraid to fail. It took me two years from the time I had the idea for Spanx until the time I had a product in hand ready to sell into stores. I must have heard the word “no” a thousand times. If you believe in your idea 100%, don’t let anyone stop you! Not being afraid to fail is a key part of the success of Spanx.”
