Can you be a badass entrepreneurial woman while still revealing your body?
The simple answer is yes. But it’s a bit more complicated than that because of societal norms. Society has sexualized and objectified the female body, yet women within today’s day and age are expected to refrain from using their bodies themselves to express sexuality. Why is that?
I aim to set an example that you can reveal your body yet not let your physical appearance define you. As a model and someone used to revealing a lot to the world I have seen the judgment first hand. Yet, if you want something bad enough you’re going to do whatever it takes to make it happen. For myself personally, I think the world is starting to see that I am so much more than my body and that I have strong opinions and ideas to offer to the world.
When building a business it’s smart to utilize all of the resources that you have at your disposal. Whether it’s your money, power, looks, influential friends or anything else that you could possibly use to leverage the growth, it would be ridiculous not to use it to your advantage.
For me I am using all of the resources at my disposal to build my 3 businesses, 2 joint ventures with other business entrepreneurs, and work on other opportunities that I have time for that add value to my brands all while i'm still at University.
Yes, I have to work a lot harder than most to prove myself because people judge me based upon my appearance. Is this right? No, but its human nature and we are all guilty of it. It’s been like this most of my life. But I’ve accepted it and once I do prove myself, the rewards are so much greater. Respect is not given it is earned.
I see what I want in life and am hustling daily to make it a reality. Within the past month I have made substantial changes to my personal brand and I think my following has taken notice. I’m growing more everyday for the better.
People are finally starting to see me for my mind and personality, rather than solely just my body. I have nothing wrong with people linking me to my body, I am proud of my body; I just don’t want it to be the only thing I am known for. I based my brand obviously upon that.
I just believe women can have it all: sex appeal, brains, personality, and respect. This is my goal. I want to empower and inspire everyone, especially strong-minded women. Because honestly, why can’t we have it all?
