We all know many celebrities who have risen to fame quickly. There are certain types of celebrities who go on to have extreme success and are recognized by almost, if not, everyone.
My top two celebrity stars, who are both in the music business, are Selena Gomez and Nicki Minaj. Selena is a huge star at the young age of 24, and isn’t without her share of controversies like the Selena Gomez bathing suit pictures that came out a while back.
She started off as an actress and gained huge stardom with her hit show Wizards of Waverly Place. She then went on to pursue a career in music as a talented pop singer with many hits, including “Tell Me Something I Don’t Know”. Nicki Minaj is also another star who rose to fame at 24, with her first mixtape being released. Nicki is a game-changing artist who has elements of rap, pop, as well as alternative. One of her most popular songs is “Super Bass”.
Along with Nicki, and the ever famous Nicki Minaj butt that’s become a mainstay of her music videos, there are many other celebrities who have gained fame through rap careers. My top two rappers, who both are close friends with Nicki Minaj, are the rappers Drake and Lil Wayne. Lil Wayne, a talented individual who was signed to Cash Money records at the age of 9, has sold over 100 million copies worldwide through his career. My other top rapper, Drake, came to the rap stage through none other than Lil Wayne himself. Drake has collaborated with Lil Wayne dozens of times through their careers. One of their hit songs together that was legendary was “The Motto”.

She is known to many as the founder of Lime Crime Cosmetics and the current acting Chief Executive Officer. Lime Crime Cosmetics is known for its vibrant colors and was actually based on Doe’s favorite color which is Lime or bright green. The use of cosmetics to conceal imperfections is just the start and Doe Deere is out to show others that it is also more about self expression and freedom.
Her mission with the cosmetics line was to provide fans with vibrant colors as well as making the cosmetics cruelty free. So no animal testing of any sort. The company now makes a huge range of lipsticks, nail polishes and eye shadows. With the main focus on being as bright and ridiculous as possible. Having started her own business she is a huge supporter of women owned business and entrepreneurship.

Doe Deere’s life at the moment is extremely busy with many meetings within her business to keep everyone thinking and working together on a common goal. She rarely has time to sit down at her desk and responds to most of her emails via her mobile phone. All of the ideas that she comes up with Doe likes to try on herself to ensure the product feels right before going into production.
Doe Deere in a recent interview stated that its not sinful to break fashion rules. Just because you go against one trend does not make you a fashion recluse. She has provided us with some of her favorite fashion and beauty rules to break but still remain as stylish and up to date as possible. Number one is not to wear both bold lip and eye makeup together, focus on one bold thing at a time. Second thing to do is not to mix too many colors in one go. Third do not mix too many different patterns into one look. Fourth when wearing open toed shoes do not wear socks with them. Fifth if you have unnaturally colored hair you can only wear neutral colors or black to go with it. Sixth, you have to dress age appropriately and seventh rule one must stick to occasion specific dressing. These are the rules that you want to break if Doe Deere is your true fashion inspiration.
During the time she worked with SEC, Helane says that she has always made a good team with her fellow workmates in order to strengthen their presence and also make a good impact in the organization. Now working as the person in charge of the office, she has to ensure that the office momentum keeps going.
Helane Morrison is 46 years old, and she will be managing the enforcement and the examination activities in the San Francisco office and its jurisdictions. Some of the places under her include northern California, Washington, Montana, Oregon, Alaska and northern Nevada.
Helane Morrison succeeded David Bayless, the person who was in her position for over 5years. He had resigned from his job to become a partner in the Morrison and Foerster Law Company based in San Francisco.
Morris joined SEC in 1996, and since then, she has managed to supervise major investigations. Three of these investigation resulted to the enforcement action on republic securities of New York, The Dean Witter and auditions performed on California Micro Devises.In the market today, there are very many compliance officers. However, very few can match the compliance standards set by Helane Morrison. They lack the knowledge and skills she displays in her work, hence failing terribly in their work. According to the CEO of Sterling Management, fraud and scandals happening in the corporates cannot end.
Susan McGalla is a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based American businesswoman and executive consultant who has made a name for herself by working with companies like Wet Seal and American Outfitters. When she became the leader of these companies, they were male dominated but over the years, she changed those figures. This is why Susan McGalla is hailed as an example for what businesswomen can achieve and she is a great role model for budding female leaders who are hoping to make a difference in the world.
Mentorship Is Important – No budding leader can go far without having a mentor or role model to help her reach her highest potential. When you are a female leader, you have to have someone like Susan McGalla or a successful person you know who would help you push past the boundaries of restriction. Mentors can also be in the form of support groups that motivate every member and achieve great results.
Remain Positive – Remaining positive in the face of adversities is important. Feminism might be a household word these days but majority of the population is still sexist. Sexism in the corporate environment is also a common phenomenon. Female leaders need to create awareness and education which would take a lot of efforts. However, people would try to bring you down in the meantime. Thus, Susan McGalla says that budding leaders or women who are just getting started on the path of leadership should stay positive.
Set Different Kinds Of Goals – A female leader needs to set various sets of goals, advises Susan McGalla. The first set of goals should be for the short term functioning of the company and the others should be long term in nature. There can also be medium term goals for objectives that should be achieved but don’t have any resource allocation yet. Another set of goals that isn’t talked about is personal goals of the female leader – what she wants to achieve in her life and what makes her happy.
Value Collaboration – Susan McGalla advises female leaders to always value collaboration and place it above competition. Some healthy competition never hurt anyone but success is achieved on a large scale with collaboration.
Finally, Susan McGalla also adds that women should keep their friends and family close. They should take time off work to pursue their hobbies and do everything that makes them calm. This would help them become better at their jobs and soon, they would become role models for women of their generation like Susan McGalla.
