Be A Little Clueless, And Highly Optimistic – Bobbi Brown

Share This Post

“Be a little clueless – and highly optimistic.  ‘I don’t think:  Oh, I’m too scared, I might lose all my money.  I might lose my reputation.’  It’s not fearlessness, I’m just naive.”

  Bobbi Brown

It’s time to think positive.  If you want to start a business, if you want to find a partner in life, if you want to buy a condo or get a new dog, it’s time to think positively.


There is no point of fearing life.


We should be charging forward in life ready to embrace it!


Find out why you are here on earth today.  There is a reason and you have a goal that is supposed to be achieved here on earth.  Maybe it is to be the most loving person….. Maybe it is a start of business.  Maybe it is to get a visa and go to a new country for different opportunities……  Maybe it is to be governor or maybe it is to be the head of your school board.  Find your purpose and go after it, without fear.  Thank you Bobbi Brown for your wonderful lessons!

Thank you for Living and Giving,



Bobby Brown

Bobbi Brown (born 1957) is an American professional makeup artist and the founder of Bobbi Brown Cosmetics. Brown has written nine books about makeup, beauty, and wellness. She has been the Beauty Editor of The Today Show and Beauty & Lifestyle editor of the Elvis Duran and the Morning Show radio broadcast. In 2015, she was listed as one of BBC\’s 100 Women.

Born to a Jewish family in Chicago, Illinois. Brown has 5 siblings including her step siblings. Brown graduated from Emerson College in Boston with a self-directed degree in theatrical makeup. In 1980, she moved to New York City to work as a professional makeup artist. Brown became known for a makeup style that included moderate and natural tones, which was a stark contrast to the bright colors used at the time.

She and a drugstore chemist created a line of lipsticks (10 lipsticks on beige pigment). In 1991, Brown and her husband partnered with another couple to launch the brand Bobbi Brown Essentials, which debuted at Bergdorf Goodman in New York City.

A chance meeting with the grandmother of an NBC Today Show producer led to a 12-year run as a regular beauty consultant on the show. The revolutionary success of her makeup line prompted Estée Lauder to buy the company in 1995, retaining Brown as an employee. Her work has since been featured on the covers of magazines such as Elle, Vogue, Self and Town & Country. Brown was inducted into the New Jersey Hall of Fame as part of the Class of 2013. Brown served as Yahoo Beauty\’s Editor-in-Chief from February 2014 to February 2016.

In November 2017, Brown received the Women\’s Entrepreneurship Day Pioneer Award for her work in Beauty.
