Her story: Carrie Bradshaw makes a living doing what she loves — and what she loves, she knows well. We see her develop from a columnist to a bona fide, published book author. She's committed to her work. Case in point: when Carrie is asked to speak at a Learning Annex, she takes the paycheck for the gig and takes her audience out to teach them exactly what they signed up for — how to meet men.
The lesson: Carrie is a reminder to stay authentic to ourselves in our life and in our work. The one downfall we can all learn from: her shoe addiction. This is a woman who spent $40,000 on shoes (lucky that book deal came through!) — a big reminder to us: save, save, save!
