Success Tips from Makeup Maven Georgette Mosbacher

| May 13, 2006 | 0 Comments

Costco Connection magazine has a very interesting article about Georgette Mosbacher, the CEO of the high-end makeup and beauty company Borghese. The article traced Mosbacher’s rise to success from a small town in the Midwest to her entrepreneurial successes before landing the top job at Borghese.

The article highlights that Mosbacher found success in the business world by “sticking to her principles.” She gave a number of interesting tips for attaining success:

  • Have tenacity. You can’t be afraid of failure because you’re going to fall in some potholes. Failure is just a detour sign. Take it as a lesson and move on.
  • Beware of well-meaning people. People often want to tell you what you can and can’t do. You have to listen to your inner voice.
  • Think on a global level. Entrepreneurs need to think beyond the obvious markets.
  • Speak up. Know who to ask, when to ask and how to ask.
  • Be patient with yourself. You don’t have to have your entire life mapped out.
  • Stay motivated. Instead of asking, “Am I doing it right?” ask yourself, “Am I doing it?”
