Being the only person to comment on this, I think the lack of response speaks volumes....Ashley, you just made yourself look even more naive and out of touch. Heres a tip - if you are serious about this you need to be able to take critical input from others. Hate to break your privlidged bubble, but you are young and have a lot to learn not just about business but life in general and you would do better to listen to people who have already made it than to cry and whine if they dont say something you like. You obviously know nothing about Bethanys business, she is not just a "baker" as you put it, in a condesending way might I add too. Your "letter" only made it look even more like you talk down to others like you are better than them and just shows you lack of maturity. You are so used to getting your way and what you want when you demand it that you think you can just snap your fingers and have a real business. And if it wasnt for your parents money, and this show, you wouldnt becuase it takes thousands of dollars and years of work and a college education to develop a skin care line that you actualy have a real part in. Yours is all the hard work of others with you name slapped on it. Not the same thing kiddo. You have a lot to learn. Being more humble would serve you well - you are not in the same league as someone like Bethany and if this is your passion you should know that by the hard work that goes into having a business. At 23 you dont know it all, you need to keep a level head becuase the 15 minutes of fame from a show your mother is on is making your head get too big. Listen to what good business women tell you and be thankfull for thier input, even if you dont like what they say. Its supposed to be constructive - offensive to you. Your way to personal. You also need to be able to handle yourself in a way that doesnt come across as freaking out over things people say like it highschool still, and being better than everyone else. These are things that turn people off in a big way and will hurt yout business big time! Work on it,mature a whole lot more,be humble, and work on being likeable - and most of all, not tied to your moms show. That makes it look like you are just fame hungry and wanted more air time by coming up with a new business idea. You need to stand on your own two feet. Less "letters", more taking advice and working on yourself. Lastly, a good business woman does NOT need to bicker and "fight back" and hold on to negativity, and doesnt try to make others feel bad even if she thinks she was hurt by them. Its not professional, and should not be a part of the adult world as it only hurts you. Let it go. Positive, good energy is what you not only want for yourself but you want to send it out to others. That is what people will come back for in your products - respect and kindness, and honesty. Work on you and you will see great results in your business. If I were you, Id send Bethany an apology and welcome any advice she has for you - her book is on the best seller list becuase of her great advice!
