I want to thank you for tuning in for the past few months. I had a great time discussing the business end of my various projects and the many lessons I’ve learned along the way.
What’s next? Quite a bit! Right now, one of my main objectives is to expand TheBeautyDepartment.com into a product line. I am currently researching all of my options, but should begin the process of executing an actual line very soon—stay tuned. I’m also focusing on expanding my other existing brands: LC Lauren Conrad, LaurenConrad.com and Paper Crown. On top of that, I’ll be working on completing my fifth book, The Fame Game.
While the future is bright, I cannot forget the missteps I have made along the way. My mistakes ended up teaching me the most invaluable lessons, which have molded me into the businesswoman I am today. I have taken chances, broken
rules and cut corners and these shortcuts haven’t always resulted in my favor. But, of all the slipups I’ve made, I honestly don’t think I would go back and correct a single one.
It’s important to make mistakes in your career, especially in the beginning. When you are just starting out you can make hasty decisions and take big chances since the stakes are rarely high early on. Trust me, it’s far better to learn those lessons sooner rather than later. By learning from failed opportunities, I’ve transformed past mistakes into flourishing brands and businesses. As basic as it may sound, learning from your mistakes is a vital part of becoming a successful entrepreneur.
While my ventures are unique due to my celebrity, I hope you learned a thing or two from the experiences I’ve shared with you. If nothing else, remember this: Do something that you love, surround yourself with people you trust, learn from your mistakes, work hard, and don’t let other people’s opinions of you become your limitations.
