What I Wish I'd Known Then {Bethenney Frankel} via Ladie's Home Journal

I am a HUGE fan of Bethenney Frankel, the mastermind behind the Skinnygirl cocktails and Skinnygirl daily brands. I admire her drive, passion for her work and her brand. I stumbled across the recent interview she did with Lady’s Home Journal and wanted to share a few points. Click here for the full article

  • Never pay retail. The item will be on sale somewhere and getting a deal will make you feel better.
  • Learn to drive stick when you first get your license or you may never learn.
  • Tip everyone. It means much more to them than it does to you.
  • Wear plenty of sunscreen, please. And do not be a sun worshipper.
  • Have a family dog. Get one that is on the smaller side. They live longer.
  • Always stop at lemonade stands.
  • Wait for the good guy. Don’t settle, but also know that there’s no such thing as the perfect man. Marry someone who loves you no matter what you look like or say or do and who knows the real you.
  • Read books. Read the newspaper. It instills confidence to be able to have a conversation at the dinner table.
  • If you have a good idea, go for it. Don’t assume it has already been done. Never assume anyone is smarter than you because they’re not.
  • Most importantly: Enjoy your life. Remember, you only get one.

Frankel is the star of Bravo’s Bethenny Ever After and author of the new novel Skinnydipping.
