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.
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."
