She’s already a stunning actress, entrepreneur wife and a mother but Blake Lively’s aspirations are still building and one of her top ones is getting her graduate degree in business.
While there is no doubt she can do it, she has her sights set high for the best of the best of degrees– Harvard. “I have a dream to go to Harvard Business School, and one of these days I will do that… in my spare time!” she told Britain’s Stylist magazine.
While getting the degree is a great idea, we have to say she’s doing pretty well without it already running her own business with her lifestyle website Preserve on top of everything else going on her life.
“There are a lot of women in business, but they don’t get enough opportunities. If you look at the facts, women spend the most on e-commerce sites, yet less than 30 percent of the companies that venture capitalists fund are female-driven, even though female-run companies are the most successful. Women connect with other women. So why are we not looking at the numbers?”
Lively, 27, obviously has done her research when it comes to the role of women in companies and she says a lot of hope can come from Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
“It’s something to be very proud of. It’s so uplifting. But the fact that we have to be proud of this advancement is a bit upsetting. I think whatever side you stand on the fact that there’s never been a woman leading this country where there are women leading households and leading companies, is a bit upsetting. What makes people think a man is more equipped to do that than a woman? Nothing.”
