Business Minded: Make Yourself Unique

By now you probably know that Glamour is my favorite mag, and after browsing through their March issue I can happily say that it didn't disappoint. I wouldn't be Savvy if I didn't soak up career tips wherever I can find them, and for me the issue's stand out section features Hollywood's powerful women dishing the tricks of their trade. With the Oscars just around the bend (yay!) I'll introduce their tips all week, so we can appreciate even more of the hard work that helps Hollywood continue to live up to its name.

Polly Cohen, president of Warner Independent Pictures, says: "I don't want to do mini-me versions of big budget films, made more cheaply. If you make the films you believe in, you will have success."

Warner Independent's newest release is Snow Angels starring Kate Beckinsale, and she has major respect for the company's president. Kate says that Polly's a role model because "Polly doesn't have that 'I'm a woman in Hollywood and therefore I have to be abrasive' attitude. She's passionate about what she does. It's infectious. It's such an attractive quality."
