Business Lessons Jessica Simpson Learned
Jessica Simpson must define what it means to be a celebrity: someone who's in the media, and the public eye in general, a lot and subjects herself to the best and the worst that that public hurls at her. For instance, there are only a few comments on this Forbes YouTube video, but they're virtually all negative and a couple are offensive. But she is sitting on a fashion line that is doing very well, and she's grown thick skin apparently, finding humor in the fact that people who criticize her still buy her shoes. I don't know how much of her success is due to her business acumen or that of her backers. Still she managed to position herself well in an industry that is tough even for lifers in that industry. No one can really knock that. No, she is not a billionaire, at least not yet (rf.
