Business Lessons from Celebrities....OPRAH

Is your hero Oprah?

Instead of putting her on a petastal learn from her and put it into action.

As you know I have several clients who have worked either with her or with Harpo Productions. Here are some of the lessons to share:

Hire quality people.
(Oprah finds and nurtures talent.)

Don't let old standards trip you up.
(Oprah overcame needing to be a skinny blonde to host a talk show host.)

Follow your passion.
(Oprah is an avid reader. She took a risk and encouraged her audience to do something other TV people might find boring...READ!)
