I’m obsessed with anything that inspires. Present me with a self-help books entitled “Be A Better You!” or a motivational workshop and I am front and center. Since I could remember I have been self-aware. Constantly on a path of self-fulfillment, my eyes are open, as wide as saucers. Ready to absorb lessons and find inspiration from…everywhere.
Today I found that inspiration in Steve Madden’s office. I didn’t break in to steal shoes or seduce him (though for a free pair of shoes I’d try anything). It was a teen outing for my job; one of the perks of working for a non-profit with fancy and connected board members When I walked in I felt like a sex addict in a sex toy shop.
Strappy shoes. Platform shoes. Red pumps. Purple heels. I experienced a shoegasm!
Then there was his glorious, funky, trendy office. I want to live in this office, create in this office.
In that moment, I vowed to continue my creative journey. I will be a successful entrepreneur. I will leave this job that has led to insufferable heat and pushes me to leave the world of education and non-profits. I am meant for bigger things, just like Steve Madden. The 1st Lady of Love brand will explode, just like the Steve Madden brand. Only difference is that he’s all about shoes and I’m all about love, relationships, sex, and Pepa Power™.
Let the changes begin.
