It used to be you wanted to marry up.
I went to a woman for advice about how to be in business, but I learned a great deal from men.
I became so consumed with trying to live up to what the public expected that I lost myself. I don’t know of anyone else who can say this.
There came a moment in my life when I realized that I had stepped into another part of my life. I used to walk into a room full of people and think, do they like me? And one day I walk in and I thought, do I like them?
When I started Victoria Principal Products, there were 22 full-time employees – they were all women.
Victory Over Violence is an organization that was created to help fund shelters for women and children.
I’m about to become a member of the Chemists Society of America. I’m very proud of that.
I enjoy speaking to other women about turning 50, and how we can enjoy it, and how we can explore it.
As the years go by, I’ve added a few pounds on, and I like it. I like it that I look a little softer.
When I don’t plumb the depths or the opportunities of each day, I don’t have joy.
I’m generally competing with the ideal I have set for myself, and I’ve found that served me very well.
I was very lucky. My parents raised me in such a way that it never occurred to me that I wasn’t equal.
As long as my body is in shape, my mind is working at its full capacity.
I try to treat people the way I would like to be treated, but I can’t worry about what everyone’s going to think.
I grew up thinking that whatever I wanted to do, I could do.
