The Gabor Sisters
OK – so she may have been labelled as a gold-digger by the people she left behind but she’s not the only woman who set out to snare a millionaire. Zsa Zsa, Magda & Eva Gabor were Hungarian beauties – who all married men of means. More than once. In the film – How to Marry a Millionaire, Marilyn Monroe, Betty Grable & Lauren Bacall set out to find eligible millionaires to marry. They found true love instead. Kim found her Mr Rich-As-Croesus right on the dating site www.iloveyouraccent.com. (Her £600 investment in elocution lessons certainly paid off.)
The right match
Finding a millionaire husband is big business. Voted as “Best of the Web” by Forbes www.millionnairematch.com has well over 2 million active singles on it. Allegedly it’s one of the most legitimate dating sites for sugar daddies and sugar babies. So there’s a plan. If that’s your goal. And there’s even a 24 step guide if you want to follow in Kim’s footsteps. On the other hand you might like to consider becoming the mistress of your own destiny and find a different kind of financial freedom that’s fueled by a different kind of passion. A passion for personal success. For some that’s climbing the corporate ladder into the boardroom.
However new research reveals something to the contrary. It seems the female entrepreneurial spirit is a far stronger force than the yellow brick road to the boardroom. A recent survey by Aspire of 1,200 female executives-&-managers found that far from being fired-up company advocates, who spend their days gazing longingly at the boardroom door, the majority of women surveyed were ready to quit their job & leave the corporate world altogether. A staggering 78% were seriously considering leaving to start their own business. Watch out! The time bomb is ticking.
Living on the ceiling
Those who dream of entrepreneurship believe it offers the chance to do something they love & create a Lovemark that people fall in love with. In the land of entrepreneurial milk-&-honey everyone is in control of their own destiny-&-decision making. There’s no pressure to be first-in-last-out. There’s a new kind of suffragette on the horizon looking right through the glass ceiling, seeing that’s it’s actually a floor & the sky’s the only limit.
