3 Lessons from Jessica Alba About Business
Now that you know all about Jessica Alba’s net worth, and how she achieved success not only in her movies but also in her business; let’s take a look at some of the best lessons we can learn from her about her products and business.
1. Get Clever People Involved.
Jessica’s co-founders include a web-savvy businessman with sizeable successes under his belt, a former leader of non-profit Healthy Child Healthy World, and someone with plenty of experience selling products online.
All experts in their field with the experience and knowledge to make The Honest Company a quick success. The lesson here is that once you get to a certain size, you shouldn’t be muddling away, wasting your time on things that other people can do better.
2. Listen to What it is You Want As a Consumer
Then you have to figure out if enough of them do to make a profitable market for you. Jessica wanted “cute diapers” – nappies with a print on them.
No one offered them and she couldn’t figure out why not. She wanted non-toxic products for her babies, who had the same sensitive skin she had growing up, but she was finding it a mission to hunt them down.
3. Keep pushing if you believe in your product.
Most businesses are not as simple as having an idea and then launching. Many times you’ll have to convince people that they should take a punt, that your idea is a good one and the world needs it.
You’ll have to convince the best talent that yours is a business they should believe in and join. Like Jessica did. She wanted to work with web entrepreneur Brian Lee, but he wasn’t interested when she first approached in 2009.
Jessica Alba’s notable film performances have included ‘Honey’, ‘Sin City’, ‘Fantastic Four’, ‘Fantastic Four: The Rise of the Silver Surfer’, and ‘Good Luck Chuck’.
Alba has also been featured many times on Maxim magazine’s Hot 100 List, including a number-one rank in 2001. She appeared on similar lists in FHM Magazine and been named one of GQ’s “25 Sexiest Women of All Time.
