Over my years in media and marketing, I've been fortunate enough to work with many amazingly talented people--some of whom you may have seen somewhere. 😉
In each of these experiences, I noticed a distinct quality that could be directly attributed to their individual success.
Here are three of those qualities:
1. They're human.
Beyond her TV hosting, acting, and blogging fame, Vanessa Lachey is a busy mother of three young children. She's made her challenges with parenthood no secret.
Those mom superpowers were on full display in an event I hosted with Stonyfield Organic at The Grove in Los Angeles. Vanessa earned a Guiness World Record title for "most bagged lunches assembled by an individual in three minutes."
After her feat, she made time to share her knowledge and answer questions from young moms and fans alike.
2. They're constantly working on themselves (and inspiring those around them).
Kellie Pickler rose from American Idol contestant to platinum-selling recording artist, all before winning Dancing with the Stars and hosting a nationally-syndicated daytime television talk show.
If that isn't enough, she's also a runner.
I witnessed her drive on display as we hosted Silk's "Run to the Red Carpet" at the historic Rose Bowl in Pasadena. Kellie cheered on hundreds of 7K participants to the finish line on the world's longest red carpet.
3. They have fun doing what they do.
Food Network's Melissa d'Arabian discovered a passion for cooking while growing up on a shoestring budget.
She parlayed that love and life experience into her trademark Ten Dollar Dinners TV program and New York Times bestselling cookbook of the same name.
Together, with Ben & Jerry's, we had a ton of fun creating a desert nacho dish for our fans at San Diego's 32 North Brewing Co.!
Wait... Dessert Nachos, you say?
