She must come across as a tough, hard nosed and straight talking boss but Kelly Cutrone is one woman who knows what she is talking about.

For those of you who are wondering who she is, Cutone owns her own public relations business, People's Revolution in New York and LA. Her success has been highlighted from her exposure in the television show The Hills and The City where she had Lauren Conrad and Whitney Port work for her.
Kelly Cutrone, mentor to Whitney Port on 'The City,' is getting her own show, 'Kell on Earth.'

In her book 'If you have to cry go outside' she details her life moving from a suburban town after completing her nursing degree to moving to New York where she socialised with the high life, became a drug addicted, married and divorced a famous artist, started her own business and found her own form of nirvana and peace.

She is someone whose advice comes across as honest, valid and genuine from her huge array or life experiences and strength to go about it on her own.

Read some of her quotes to feel inspired and empowered by this strong woman.

"My grandma used to tell me, “Success is the best revenge."

"Even though I am sometimes perceived as a bitch or a witch, the office atmosphere I cultivate is nothing like the cultural stereotype of striving women clawing each other to death to get the queen bee’s job. Women have been taught that, in order to get ahead, we have to be secretive and plotting and manipulative, because a straightforward route to the top hasn’t always existed for us, and in many industries it still doesn’t. But I don’t believe in playing into these stereotypes. We don’t have to stab each other in the back, we don’t have to take things personally and break down when we’re criticized, and we don’t have to advance at each others’ expense."

"This is an important lesson to remember when you’re having a bad day, a bad month, or a shitty year. Things will change: you won’t feel this way forever. And anyway, sometimes the hardest lessons to learn are the ones your soul needs most. I believe you can’t feel real joy unless you know what it means to fail. You can’t know what it’s like to feel holy until you know what it’s like to feel really fucking evil. And you can’t be birthed again until you’ve died."

"I’m a really big believer that we all have this voice inside of us, and that voice is God talking to us, and we are all magical, and we all have something as specific to do as our fingerprint. And everybody should go out and do that. And I think between the ages of 15 and 32, don’t worry about getting married, don’t worry about settling down, don’t worry about having a baby. Give birth to yourself."

"So many mothers say they want their daughters to be independent, but what they really hope is that they’ll find a well-compensated banker or lawyer and settle down between the ages of 25 and 28 in Greenwich, Darien, or That Town, USA, to raise babies, do the grocery shopping, and work out in relative comfort for the rest of their lives. I know this, because I employ their daughters. They raise us to think they want us to have careers, and they send us to college, but even they don’t really believe women can be autonomous."
