This is for us, Women of Today.
Lately, I've been reading profiles of successful women. One of those who struck me was Anna Wintour, editor-in-chief of the highly influential Vogue magazine. She was born and grew up in London, and her father, Charles Wintour, was a newspaper editor during his days. Obviously, Anna's father had a big influence on her. The education, upbringing, exposure and privileges that Anna acquired since birth, have brought her to where she is today.
As I read on about successful women who rose to the top of the ladder, they have these common and distinct characteristics:
4. Have 1 or 2 children, or have no children
7. Married late, or had children in their later years.
8. Good upbringing and good education
9. Married, had 3 or more children, but are well-driven- that's #1. (I just had to add this).
Some of us have on or two of the above. Many of us however, may belong to No.8. It's not too late, ladies.
I like how Anna W. describes successful people:
'People respond well to people who know what they want.'
