Being a mother may be the secret to innovation...

They say that necessity is the motherhood of invention.  However, lately I am becoming convinced that being a mother is the secret to innovation.  I read A Place of Yes by Bethenny Frankel a while ago and recently started reading Kris Jenner’s book, Kris Jenner and all things Kardashian.  I was impressed by these stories and concluded that these are two mothers who have turned their innovation into cash.

While both women star in their reality TV shows, Bethenny Ever After and Keeping Up With the Kardashians, respectively, their real genius is in their ability to make lemons out of lemonade or margaritas out of tequila since it has been reported that Bethenny made about $90 Million Dollars last year from the sale of her Skinnygirl cocktail line. It has also been reported that the Kardashian family made $65 Million dollars last year from being the Kardashians (among other things that involves making appearances, selling clothing, and advertising goods for others).

That is some serious money from a couple of women that some more "educated" people dismiss as self promoters who lack talent and are on "silly" reality TV shows.  It seems like these "silly girls" are laughing all the way to the bank. 

While reading their books I started thinking about what potential lessons they might contain for a little Black girl from Rochester.  I'll be sharing those lessons in a series of posts this week.  And of course, because this is Chaton's World. I will also be sharing lots of stories about me, my baby, and my man.

Stay tuned!
