Hello Beauties!

Great reading for Thanksgiving holiday! – Snuggle up with a blanket.

We are fortunate to have iconic mentors at our fingertips by searching on Google. The other night I was on YouTube searching for a video unrelated to my topic here and I happened upon a few videos of Anna Wintour, the iconic journalist and editor-in-chief of Vogue Magazine.

With a net worth of $35 million, she’s worth listening to, don’t you think?

Regardless of her global reputation as being the “ice queen” and a challenge to work with (The Devil Wears Prada), I find her absolutely fascinating and plenty to learn from in how to be a powerful decisive business woman.Anna came on as editor-in-chief in 1988 when the Vogue brand needed a major uplift. She was named creative director of Conde Nast in 2013. She completely changed the trajectory of the brand with her innovative, intuitive, decisive approach to publishing.

She was the first editor to feature celebrities on the cover of a fashion magazine. Prior, it was always left for professional models. That strategy proved to be a major game changer. This and plenty more placed Anna on the map as the most powerful fashion expert in the world.

The more I watched the videos the more intrigued and in awe I was of her approach to culture, influence, business success, fashion, dignity, and intelligence.

Among those videos was the documentary “The September Issue”, which takes you behind the scenes during the five months leading up to the 2011 launch of the famous annual Sept issue of Vogue. That issue is renowned for being the biggest issue of the year weighing in at 4.5 lbs and 658 pages!

Who but this global fashion icon to give us brilliant success advice. Watch this video highlighting Anna’s Top 10 Rules for Success –

#1 and #10 are my favorites. Which ones are yours? Share with me your choices.

Have a beautiful Thanksgiving!
Make an impact.
