Don’t hate me coz I’m beautiful
Last night I was driving home from seeing a friend and turned the radio on to LBC, Nick Abbott was on air and he was referring to a study which was being featured in the Daily Mail. The study stated that women who go into business do so because they are unattractive and can’t get a man.
At first I was shocked by this. Nick Abbott was trying to think of an unattractive business woman and was finding it challenging. It’s easy to think of attractive women like Karren Brady, Angelina Jolie and Oprah Winfrey.
The insinuation is that women who can’t find love, find solace in business, this flies in the face of the statistics on the growing number of female breadwinners. These women combine love and career success!
As we all know beauty is in the eye of the beholder, confident, successful women are attractive in my eyes.
The question is if I was top model material would I have gone into business? If I am honest I probably wouldn’t do so until my looks started deteriorating.
So maybe if you are not in the top 1% of what the world considers beautiful other choices are open to you, business being one of them.
What do you think?
