A few notable quotes from the interview below (listen to the full interview below):
Bobbi Brown on being persistent and the concept of having “your big break”:
“Just know that there isn’t necessarily a big break. There’s a lot of little things that lead up to it, and it’s the simple rules. Number one is you have to be open. Number two is you have to keep going no matter what. You just got to keep at it. Number three is you have to be nice to people. If you’re not nice, no one’s going to want to either help you or do anything for you. You just have to keep doing it.” – Bobbi Brown on being persistent and the concept of having “Your big break”.
Bobbi Brown on why she gets excited about new phases in her life:
“Well, honestly, I learned, early on, that it’s not what I know that excites me. It’s what I don’t know. The projects I get excited about, especially if I’ve never done them before. I didn’t know anything about being an editor-in-chief when I did Yahoo! Beauty. I didn’t know anything, but I’m like, “Okay. How would I like to do this?” It’s kind of the same thing with the podcast and the same thing with the hotel – never done a hotel before, but I stayed in enough of them.”
Bobbi Brown’s advice to young entrepreneurs who are trying to make it:
“You got to build a brand. People think that the whole idea of building a brand is to sell it and make a lot of money. No. Build a brand that you love. It takes time. It’s like a baby. You got to nurture it. I would tell people to relax and chill and not be afraid to change. If something they’re doing isn’t working, change.”
