3 Things I’ve learned from the jet-set world

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

I got my first foot into the jet-set world when I was 19 years old and living in Italy. It was unplanned and just happened. Since then, I’ve traveled and lived in many different countries before settling in London 5 years ago. Although I’ve learned loads during my adventures around the world, I would say it was probably in London where I’ve got most of my lessons learned from the jet set bubble. Today I thought of sharing three of them with you.

Lessons from Jetset World


1. What you can offer will define how interesting you are

It’s quite obvious that if you’re rich, famous or beautiful, you will be “useful” on the jet-set market. But did you know that for aspiring JetsetBabes, you also need to bring something to the table if you want to get ahead in the game? It’s not only about what you can get, but a lot more on what you can give….

Looks will always be key, but today everyone is beautiful, so it’s not really a unique selling point anymore. Instead, you need to have something in your basket, as otherwise, people won’t be very interested in becoming your friend or helping your forward.

With men, it’s easy because they are so simple. They only care about if you’re beautiful! But if you want to network outside of that circle, and find meaningful connections for friendship, business, etc. it gets trickier as you won’t be interesting if you’re empty-handed. Having a great personality, an exciting job or a strong personal network is something that will always help you forward in the jet-set bubble. You should always be generous with what you can do for people if you want to get ahead. It will help you loads!

2. People evaluate you by judging you

Get used to getting scanned from top to bottom when you enter a high-end place. With the jet-set, that’s how they define if you’re worth their attention or not. Every information about you can be found in your attributes. What clothes you’re wearing, how your make up is, how your hair looks and what handbag you have. But that’s of course without me mentioning the most obvious, how your face, body and overall appearance looks. Don’t think that nobody will notice the chipped nail polish or the small tear on your clothes; it’s these things that bring down your “value.”

Your value can go up if you have the right attitude, confidence and correct style, or if you are with the right people. Many times I see people fail with their presentation because they don’t understand the importance of attention to detail and having the right taste and attitude.

When people are not getting ahead in the game, and they can’t seem to understand why; it’s usually because somewhere between these lines they are doing something wrong = and people label them as B instead of A. To get the A-label you need to get everything right and be “like they are”. The more you look like a real jet-setter, the easier it will be to get ahead. That’s why I always talk about on this blog how worth it is to invest in yourself because there will always be a return on investment! Always!

3. All the talk with no action will drive you mad at some point

People like to lie about themselves; people like to lead you on; people like to make you promises they won’t keep, and people like to say anything to make themselves look better. Get used to it. Take everything you hear with a pinch of salt. Try and navigate around it somehow. It’s easy to lose trust in people and get fed up with the BS, but it should never be what will stop you from your mission.

The more you get exposed to this, the more you will learn how to recognize the good from the bad. It will be frustrating, but it will make a big girl out of you. The most important thing to know; you’re not alone being exposed to this. Everyone does, and everyone is swearing about it.

But what can you do over a misbehavior that got invented in a society where it’s all about impressing one and another. The good news is that sometimes, it’s not only talk. Sometimes people actually deliver and make these promises come true, and that’s when life gets really exciting. But be patient. Good things do come to those who wait.

And now I want to teach you to do what I did. I started from the bottom, and it took me many years to understand how to navigate efficiently in the jet-set world to avoid getting burned.

Iโ€™m currently working on something very special for those ladies who are serious about their upgrade in life and becoming a true JetsetBabe. I want to use my 13 years of lessons and learnings in the jet-set world to create something of value to others who are walking similar path (or would like to start!). I can’t share more for now, but I do recommend visiting jetsetschool.com to find out more!

    Please more dear Anna! I am struggling with some things that you wrote about. I was ashamed of myself recently because I didn’t want to go certain places with “friends” because of their image. But now I realise to be successful every small detail is important. Including the people I surround myself with.

  6. Anna Persson on

    You forgot the most important thing, no matter where you are!
    Correct and proper English with the right grammar and accent. By reading and wathing your youtubeclips you show that you really need to work on that to be more reliable.

    Best of luck to you!

    • Anna Person, honestly she has improved over the years — a lot!! If you read her earlier posts, it is very evident how hard she works at improving her English language skills!

      I find her passion for improvement so inspiring!! She is not afraid to just jump in and join in the actual “living” part of life. She is a doer, not a bystander on the sidelines.

      Frankly, as a language nerd, I have found that if I am too worried about my language imperfections, I hold back from living life and developing meaningful relationships with people. Fear of not speaking or writing perfectly creates limits on the opportunities in my life that could allow me to refine my personal language skills further. Fear of imperfection then limits me from connecting with others and thus, creates limits on my ability to achieve my dreams in life.

      Book smarts (eg. being a language grammar nerd) vs. real world knowledge on how to use language grammar skills are two different things.

      Jump in and swim! If the water’s cold, swim harder to stay warm but don’t forget to still have fun as you learn to do so!

      Real living is when we are swimming for ourselves and experimenting with our movements as we perfect our personal strokes. True living does NOT happen when we fearfully sit on the shore watching others swim while wishing we could have that type of fun too!

    • PS. I find Anna’s grammar and pronunciation mistakes charming. It is evident how hard she works to speak eloquently in a foreign tongue as she creates so many YouTube videos for people to watch.

      Anna is refreshing real and not afraid of making mistakes. I find her whole attitude delightful! She inspires me to continue on my own relentless personal improvement journey. โ™ฅ๏ธ
