Paula Deen's Career Success

A Little Monday Inspiration — Paula Deen

Need a little Monday inspiration to get you going, then look no further than Paula Deen. The 62 year-old restaurateur, entrepreneur, and superwoman, makes the list of Fortune's 50 Most Powerful Women, and opens up about her journey to the top and how she totally transformed her life.

You may not agree with her buttery-indulgent recipes, but Paula's personal story and professional mega-success certainly inspire — serving as a role model for anyone looking to make a career out of their passion, and as a reminder that it's never too late to redirect your career goals.

Explains Paula, "I came from an era where...I expected some man to take care of me...[till] 42 [when] I realized that I was just as capable as my husband," and opened her very own restaurant business, The Bag Lady — the first small step in a career move that has had a huge payoff. How's that for a savvy career woman?
