Who can use a healthy dose of mid-week inspiration? I sure can! Earlier this week I came across this article on Twitter (yes I totally bait-clicked) and was intrigued because it was about one of my favorite Housewives, Bethany Frankel. I should say that I have always loved Bethany because she’s tough as nails when she believes in something but she always combines that with humor and her heart of gold for helping others. Plus she’s flat-out hilarious!

Anyway, this article on how she went from $20,000 in credit card debt to becoming a multi-millionaire just really spoke to me and fired me up to work harder, smarter, and be ruthless in pursuing my dreams. One of my favorite things she says is that she has always been devoted to working quickly and efficiently (hustling if you will). She mentions a co-worker who would always stay until 9pm working and when her boss asked why she wasn’t staying that late too she replied, “He didn’t get his work done.” She also discusses making yourself an invaluable employee and never accepting anything less than doing & being your best. Talk about a #girlboss! Of course I also love that she combines this hustler’s attitude with her strong belief in giving back and serving others.

I hope that you can take a few minutes today and check out her article – I promise that you will feel inspired and fired up to take on your job with renewed enthusiasm!

    Bethenny seriously is the best! Girlfriend is so strong, and I’m still in awe of how much of a humanitarian she’s turned into as well <3

    Wow! What a great read! She is really inspiring. I loved that bit about staying late and having her work done. That’s awesome! I also found it really interesting that she said her co stars wouldn’t be able to afford the life they have if things changed. That’s something I’ve been really thinking about is living below our means and outright owning our things. Thanks for sharing! I always find such good articles through other people, so I always like it when people share good stuff.

      I thought about the same thing! I’ve been really trying to live within my means more lately and it is not easy so I thought it was so interesting that her co-stars struggle with that too!
