Lillee Jean “Never lose focus of who you are” (Thrive Global) 2021
Lillee Jean: “Never lose focus of who you are”, interview with Authority Magazine, for Thrive Global, and Medium.
"Resilience. Never lose focus of who you are. If you allow the bad people to take who you are, well they’ve won. Refocus if you must, but never allow them to win. Build lasting business relationships. I’m friends with tons of people in different industries, music, art, makeup, dance, boxing, fitness, etc." - Lillee Jean
Do you feel comfortable sharing a story from your own experience about how you felt unusually low, and vulnerable as a result of your business? We would love to hear it.
When the cyberbullying reached a fever pitch, and brands were being written, as well as called non-stop, by fake accounts, with the most outrageous names you could ever imagine, I was in shock. I couldn’t believe that any brand would give somebody the time of day that not only didn’t have a photo, but, also was using the most craziest names you can think of to call themselves. That was an unusually low point in my life, and I felt quite fragile at that time. Nowadays, I just say, here is my lawyer on dial, he will deal with you via subpoena, if you want to get smart about it. As for companies that were judgmental and chose the path of least resistance, meaning not being annoyed on social media, I am better off for not working with them, and as I have grown I would never recommend their products to my fans, all 1 million-plus.
