Her waffle-craving Minajesty has spoken!
And therein the April 2013 issue of Elle, feisty Nicki Minaj delivers the law on the golden respect-commanding truth.
Specifically applicable to women, we find the wisdom beneficial to ANYONE needing a confidence boost.
She tells the mag:
"My advice to women in general: Even if you’re doing a nine-to-five job, treat yourself like a boss. Not arrogant, but be sure of what you want, and don’t allow people to run anything for you without your knowledge. You want everyone to know, 'Okay, I can’t play games with her. I have to do right by this woman.' That’s what it’s all about."
Preach it, Nicki!!
No arrogance needed, just voluminous self-respect for yourself! And in turn, that will become the same for those around you.
Nicki's take-charge attitude has already earned her a HIIIIGH spot on the ladder (from her insanely popular music to her spot as a judge on American Idol), but she's reaching even farther, telling Elle her plans for the future:
"My goal in the beginning was to buy my mother a house. Now I realize, 'Okay, if I really focus and become a key player in business, then I can build an empire.' I’m thinking of a legacy that I can be proud of and wealth that my grandchildren can use to go to college. So world domination — in terms of providing for my family — is absolutely my goal."
Commendable! On every level!!
We know it's a fantasy for a lot of people to have the ability to provide for their loved ones, and we're so proud of Nicki-Nick for waving that independent woman flag loud and proud!!
