Chelsea's and Ellen's books are both hysterical, and when I read them, I highlighted my favorite lines... now I want to start sharing some of Ellen's. Sometimes they're just straight up funny, and sometimes they're inspirational or about life, but still humorous.
I think this one is perfect to kick off this new thing I will be doing:
It's awesome advice, and maybe even more awesome because in the business I'm in, I'm constantly listening to other people to get ideas and inspiration... but I need to remember that I should never do exactly what someone else is doing if I wanna make it. Really, that goes for any profession. If you want that promotion, you're not going to get noticed by doing what someone else is doing, even if they are "better." Find a different way to do it and maybe that way will be even better than their's.
Okay, I'll shut up now because nothing I say will be as awesome as what Ellen just did.
I totally just did exactly what I said not to do, didn't I? Hmph.
