Business Minded: Love Your Job

We're merely four days from the Oscars which means it's time for another career tip from Hollywood's women that aren't scared to work it. Glamour got Lauren Zalaznick, president of Bravo and Oxygen network, to talk about her success — we have Lauren to partially thank for our Project Runway addiction!

Lauren's philosophy is simple enough but at the same time poignant: "The happier you are at work, the better you will be. Recognizing what makes you satisfied usually coincides with other people recognizing you are doing a good job."

Padma Lakshmi weighed in on Lauren as a role model, and it sounds like she's never daydreamed of asking Lauren to pack her knives and go. Padma said, "Lauren listens to my concerns. There will be times when she doesn't agree with me, and she'll say, 'We don't see your role like that.' A lot of people try to placate talent. Lauren's not like that."

I know exactly what I love to do and no matter how stressful it gets, when I'm doing work I love, I still go home happy. Unfortunately, when I *KNOW* I'm not doing what I want, I'm just that much unhappier with a job I have to currently settle into. I know there are so many people out there that haven't found a job they love yet though. My bf is one of these people. It gets him down because he HAS that expectation of loving his career, but sometimes it just doesn't come that easy. Sometimes, you can only hope to be treated well and valued at your job... and in the meantime, continue to learn more and more about yourself and about the world around you. Maybe then, you'll figure it out.

Being happy is a scary goal to have, because you can't always be happy. I just want to be valued, because I view what I do as an extension of myself.
