Fake, female entreprenuers

What do Elizabeth Holmes, Gwyneth Paltrow and Kim Kardashian have in common?

A belief that you can fake it until you make it.

That being a woman means pandering to the worst of capitalist culture.

And that money makes you intelligent and successful.

Nothing wrong with being a bimbo. Be yourself. Just be honest about who you really are, what your skills are and what you offer others.
