Any guesses? Don't think gossip-worthy here, ladies. Think biz-worthy. The Reporter hosted their 16th Annual Women in Entertainment Power 100 breakfast this month, and keynote speakers talked about how much the industry has changed since the first annual breakfast. Sixteen years ago they struggled to get 50 people there but this year they oversold the event!
It was actually Queen Latifah that got me thinking about how much other women's efforts affect all of us. Here's what she had to say:
We rarely discuss the positive roles we can play in everyone else's careers. They say that behind every successful man is a woman, but there is also a woman behind every successful woman. I want to inspire self-esteem and a positive attitude and give my support to other women because no one else can drag us down like we do ourselves.
The way she says it sounds a tad cliche but the message behind her speech is a meaningful one. The purpose of events like this is to show off how hard everyone's been working, and to inspire other women to accomplish their goals. It's like a really big pep talk implying, "If we can do it, so can you." Check out BuzzSugar to see who made the list.
