Let's face it. Most people would dream for the chance to be on the red carpet at any star-studded event. Now imagine if it were a part of your business. That's the life TV personality and entrepreneur Sal Morgan leads in Los Angeles. She mixes with stars on red carpets from the Oscars to the Golden Globes, is constantly in demand at high profile gifting suites, and showered with schwag at incredible events. Growing up, she wanted to work in Hollywood, and that's exactly what she did.

Power Girls know what they want and aren't afraid to get it.

As Australia's number one celebrity journalist, Morgan successfully turned a love for tinseltown into a bonafide business career. Living in Australia, she had her sights on the goal of becoming a leading correspondent but jobs were scarce with Hollywood nearly halfway around the globe. Rather than giving up on her dream, she gave up a cushy job in her home country for a new life in Los Angeles. Today she holds a top perch on the entertainment scene interviewing big time stars like Kanye West, Sandra Bullock and Britney Spears.

This week, fellow entrepreneur and New Power Girls co-creator Meghan Cleary and I sat down with the entertainment industry sensation to find out her three top tips for turning what you love into a business. Shot at the gorgeous Oceana hotel in Santa Monica, CA (with gifts from Alltop.com, Bliss, Cosabella, Sortingwithstyle.com and John Kelly chocolates), we asked the big question: How she did it.

The New Power Girls how-to video series will be published every Wednesday for the next six weeks and includes great women entrepreneurs like Paige Adams-Geller of Paige Premium Denim, author and writer/director Andrea Buchanan and more. Be sure to check back!
