It's Woman Crush Wednesday! I can't wait to introduce you to Martha Stewart! Not that she needs an introduction at ALL!
Sitting here in the lobby of Martha Stewart’s gorgeous white washed office that overlooks the Hudson in NYC. I can’t believe that I have been blessed to work with the most amazing team for the past 9 years! It was Martha after all that inspired me as a child to evolve creatively! As I walk through the office I pass the boardroom that is stunning! Martha is at the head of the table. She is wearing a denim shirt and khaki shorts today. She looks like she just stepped out of her own magazine where she was clipping tulips. But this is a different day. The conference table is lined with men on each side. If you could imagine what the perfect NY businessman would be wearing imagine that and then make it one step better. She has their attention which is not surprising as I am sure she can capture any room. To see a woman follow her dreams and to get a glimpse into what it actually took to make those dreams a reality is a gift. Knowing a bit of the back info on the business side of the company right now I know these meetings aren't the easiest being the founder and it inspires me even more seeing her strength in person.
While she inspires the way I entertain I am probably most inspired with the empire she has created and her strength on how she evolved into the most creative and in touch with her team CEO that I have ever seen! Has she failed? Yes. But she rises even stronger afterwards. That is a true leader to follow.
Here is a little insider info: If you see a Martha product, magazine, book or TV show, that IS actually her. Her passion, her eyes and her hand is on each piece on EVERY page. This isn't typical at a business this size!
Thank you Martha! You created more than an empire. You gave others confidence to live their dreams out as well! I encourage you to let those around you know if they inspire you. NO matter who they are, they deserve to know! They may need the boost! ❤
