My 20’s was all about me learning about jet-set life through trial and error (mostly error in the beginning), and my journey was a continuous rollercoaster of ups and downs. I had to pick myself up many times after falling down from being on a “high,” but that’s what’s given me this incredible experience that has built the foundation for this blog.
Life as a JetsetBabe for most women is not always easy. While it can look extremely comfortable from a quick glance on Instagram, people tend to forget the amount of work it can take to reach this level.
This lifestyle is great if you know how to navigate and if you’re smart. Unfortunately, there are many “sharks” (just like anywhere else, but a bit extra here) that you need to be aware of. When you’re young and naive, you’ll most probably going to get bitten a few times. I learned it the hard way. But I’m not going to complain because it has given me this unbelievable experience that is very valuable today.
Some of the things I’ve learned:
► Even when you think you’re “sorted,” there is never security for anything. People talk a lot in the jet-set world, and they can change their mind in a second. Being dependent on other people’s decisions was something I found to be the most difficult. Insecurity about what will happen tomorrow is a feeling you have to get used to.
► Friends might not be your friends after your success becomes equal to theirs or grows higher. It’s a competitive bubble, and you should always keep quiet when you’re doing well. While it’s tempting to share all the juice to your girlfriends, it’s better to shut your mouth because nothing good will ever come from indulging in your own happiness! (Leave it for a moment with yourself!)
Also, make sure to always protect yourself from the evil eye, you will need it when you’re starting to do well!
► There is so much to gain from the jet-set world if you’re clever and ambitious. Sadly, many girls get lazy when they get the comfortable five-star treatment which makes them postpone their life to some other day.
Big mistake! You never know when this opportunity will be gone! Like with everything in life, nothing lasts forever, and the same goes for the jet-set world. Act now and act smart!
► The way to feel socially accepted in the jet-set world is to look and act like them. Transformation and being on top of your game is key, classy behavior too! I started my journey by looking like a ragamuffin but I polished my looks as time went by.
In the beginning, I didn’t have anyone to guide me (why didn’t JetsetBabe exist back then?), but I used my brain to analyze how classy women dress and look after themselves. I asked many questions, hassled for answers and copied styles I liked. Everyone copies each other in this world, so don’t try and re-invent the wheel. Try to find a style that works for you and is classy so you can blend in.
► Everything is all about marketing. How you market yourself, how you portray your image, how you act according to your image and so on… People judge in 2 seconds, and scanning each other is a way of understanding “are you part of us or not?”. An animal instinct perhaps, but a comfortable way for humans to group together and find common interests.
The girls who really know how the power of personal branding works, are those girls who have a clear advantage. They fake it till they make it and nobody would ever be able to see through them (because they’re clever).
Most of the jet-setters fake something of their own. Let it be the success of their career, their handbags/watches or the important people that they claim they know. You’ll get immune to the BS that goes around in this circle. But the clever babe is the one who can see right through it and know where to not waste her time.
This was my continuation of lessons that I’ve learned from my previous post that you can find here. But I have so many more for you guys! Maybe that’s why universe decided to make me to learn the jetset world the hard way?!
Because I learned so much, I acted stupid many times, but then the AHA-moments came, and I learned how to be smart. 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!
