POSH Pearls: "In Order to be Irreplaceable, One Must ALWAYS Be Different!" CoCo Chanel

The CEO of POSH PR®, The Caroline Doll, and CoCo Chanel have something in common....

In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different
— CoCo Chanel

Another POSH Pearls of wisdom! CoCo Chanel is a living example of one of my main philosophies: Stay true to yourself and you will have no competition!

I know it sounds funny. Competition is one of the main tenets of a capitalist economy. We’re taught that competition is what drives a free market! The top competitor is always the winner! Caroline, WHY are you talking capitalism and free markets on a Lifestyle + Beauty + Fashion blog?! Here’s the thing: the word “compete” itself is defined as “striving to gain or win something by defeating or establishing superiority over others who are trying to do the same.” “Who are trying to do the same.…” Call me crazy, but I don’t want to do what’s already being done. I don’t want to do what everyone else is doing. 

I may not be an economics professor but…

Authenticity is one of the main tenets of a Caroline economy. 

I don’t have any competition. You know why? Because nobody else can be ME. My end goal is to be the very best ME possible, to always put my best foot forward, to always strive for excellence in all I do, with the unique gifts I’ve been blessed with and talents God has equipped me with. This is MY end goal. And you know what I discovered? It’s impossible for anybody else to do the same as me because each and every one of us has our own set of gifts, talents, and abilities! 

“In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.” Guess what, dolls, you already ARE irreplaceable. You ALREADY are different. CoCo discovered this about herself and RAN with it! She ran across her own finish line in creating the Chanel brand. I’m running toward my own pink finish line, dressed in a tulle skirt and champagne in hand and creating #TheCarolineDoll brand! 

Dolls, let's build something BEAUTIFUL! I KNOW the world is just waiting for you to build your brand! And I'd LOVE to help you build it at "The PR Behind The Pretty," a business intensive workshop I'm holding at Quirk Hotel in January! Sign up here

Beauty begins the moment you decide to be yourself.
