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.
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.
I’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!
