#1558 Anna Wintour is awesome, recommends getting fired

Anna Wintour is a woman after my own heart. Speaking to a group of budding editors at a conference put on by Teen Vogue this weekend past, she said:

“I worked for American Harper’s Bazaar… they fired me. I recommend that you all get fired, it’s a great learning experience.”

Speaking from experience as someone who has been fired, I can honestly say it was the best thing that ever happened to my career (though I didn’t necessarily know it at the time). Like Ms Wintour says – you should all give it a go. Nothing puts a rocket under your chair like being walked to the door while carrying all your personal belongings in a cardboard box.

I LIKE YOU!
