Jaime King calls in to talk about making her dreams happen, perfectionism in the age of social media, and her Pull-Ups potty training method. Plus, the Celebuzz editors discuss celebrity entrepreneurship and building a multi-hyphenate brand.
Mia talks with the lovely Jaime King, who happens to be a model-actress-producer-beauty maven-mom. King gives us the run-down on her Pull-Ups potty training method that’s based on a personality quiz, and provides her infinite wisdom on achieving your dreams.
“I don’t want to live a limited life, and I don’t want the people around me — no matter where they come from — to feel like they can’t achieve everything possible,” says King, who comes from a regular family in Omaha, Nebraska. “Nobody ever thought that I’d end up doing this here and it was just by the belief that I would, and the hard perseverance and work, and the rejection many, many, many, many, many times, and the acceptance of that.”
The Heart of Dixie actress’s advice to young girls who wish to be in her position of influence one day begins with discovering who you are, loving that person, and letting go of the “likes” on Instagram. “It doesn’t matter how many followers you have, how many people are on Facebook; none of that is a measure of who you are as a human being,” she stresses. “It has nothing to do with anything. It is all an illusion.”
“Write down what your strengths are, write down what your weaknesses are, and then write down what you want to improve on, and then take the steps to get there. But first and foremost, you have to understand to learn to love yourself because that’s the most important gift that you could ever give yourself in regards to success.”
