Monday Muse: Kelly Cutrone

Kelly-Cutrone-pan_3207.jpg The self-proclaimed "Mama Wolf" of public relations, Kelly Cutrone has a thing or two to say about what it takes to make it in the industry. As the founder of fashion-based PR firm People's Revolution, Kelly possesses years of experience working with clients, high-end brands and executing high-profile events time and time again. After reading both of Kelly's books, I can say with confidence that I've learned how far quick wit and a thick skin will take you in the media industry. Let's kick off the workweek with a few words from the PR maven herself! Feeling inspired yet?

• “When you're following your inner voice, doors tend to eventually open for you, even if they mostly slam at first.” - Kelly Cutrone

• “Take the years when you’re young – say, between the ages of fifteen and thirty-five, before you have a mortgage or kids or anything else that needs to be fed – and go balls out on intuition and follow your dreams. Dreams won’t always take you on a straight path to destiny, but they’re usually related to what your soul wants for you. They’ll force you to ask yourself the hard questions, they’ll kick your ass, and most importantly, they’ll turn you on.” - Kelly Cutrone

• “The only dream I ever had was the dream of New York itself, and for me, from the minute I touched down in this city, that was enough. It became the best teacher I ever had." - Kelly Cutrone
