If you know me at all you know I am kind of OBSESSED with Jennifer Lopez. She can do no wrong! And she has twin babies just like me!
Now, if you know anything about J Lo, you know she's a total power house and kind do it all - sing, act, dance, be flawless. You also would know that she has been dating Alex Rodriguez, MLB superstar for 22 seasons before retiring, for almost 2 years.
A Rod has transitioned into the business world with A-Rod Corporation and guest-star appearances on Shark Tank, and J Lo recently revealed that it was her boyfriend who gave her the business advice that "changed her career."
While talking on the "Conversations with..." series on LinkedIn, J Lo revealed exactly what that advice was:
“You’re the product... Deep down I knew that when I made a company almost two billion dollars, and I only came home with literally… it had to be like 5 percent of that, maybe less. Much less. Yeah, much less than that. That there was something wrong.”
J Lo went on the explain that as an artist, you often feel so grateful for getting to do what you love that you sometimes don't look out for yourself enough. And that even women in general have that problem, though it is shifting.
But she does have a solution: “What I think I’ve learned and what I’m trying to do now at this point in my life is to say ‘no’ a little bit more and hone it down to like working smarter instead of working all the time... It gets tiring.”
How could you NOT love J Lo when she has such a respectful view like this!! I love that she is standing up for herself and encouraging other women to do the same.
