The Right Words At The Right Time, From Betsey Johnson (VIDEO)

When asked if she had ever been given any valuable advice, fashion designer Betsey Johnson had a great story to share. When she was working in fashion as a freelancer early in her career, Betsey’s colleague in fashion, a fashion editor named Mary Lou Luther advised her to stop what she was doing and leave. "She visited me at work and said that the atmosphere and the environment was not good for me and suggested I leave that day." Betsey left, and she said it changed her life.

"I’m not a very good listener when it come to advice," admitted Betsey, "but if you really respect and trust someone and they give you advice, you should listen."
