“I was a wife and a mother, and I was completely fulfilled.
But my husband recognized the signals in me which said,
“I’ve been doing enough gardening, I’ve cooked enough good dinners,
I’ve sat around the house and mooned about what more interior decoration
I can get my fingers into.”
It’s a curious thing with actors and actresses,
but suddenly the alarm goes off.
My husband is a very sensitive person to my moods
and he recognized the fact that I had to get on with something.
‘Mame’ came along out-of-the-blue, just at this time.
Now isn’t that a miracle?”

“My claim to fame will not be that I inherited my father’s company and bled it.
My claim to fame will be that I inherited my father’s entrepreneurship abilities and I built many companies.
Not only did I build them, but I trained and continue to train others to do the same thing.
I work with partners to ensure that they experience the kind of success that I am having.
I don’t know how a human being can enjoy himself any more than I am.”

“I have my team.
Like if you see everyone around me –
I have my hair and makeup girl, my assistant.
They’re very calm, they’re all about positive energy.
There are no drama queens.
Everyone wants everyone else to have a positive experience.
There are no agendas.
I think it creates a healthy environment
and there are no boundaries to cross.”
