Last week Oprah had a show focusing on a select few that hold their dream jobs... obviously to each their own - not everyone would consider each job a glamorous dream job. I have made it pretty clear that J Crew holds a special place in my heart - and the master mind behind it all is Jenna Lyon's who happens to be the Executive Creative Director. She was featured on Oprah's show - and may I just say I fell in love! We saw her with her family in her Brooklyn townhouse... which she had an entire bedroom dedicated to her closet - seriously - how do I get that?? We followed her throughout the day at J Crew - seeing the odds and ends of putting together the catalog, etc. The thing that fascinated me the most about her interview was that she started at the company at age 21 and hasn't stopped climbing the corporate ladder since!
Jenna wasn't the only fabulous peep to be spotlighted - there were a handful including the Cake Boss, florist, stunt woman, Internet Analyst and 'Wine Angels'. Most of the guests all had one common piece of advice to those still searching for their dream job - it's all about doing what you love! Which reminded me of a quote I used to have in my office (HR nerd - ha!) 'If you enjoy what you do, you will never work another day in your life'. - Confucius
