Lipstick Leadership: Creativity - Elaine Starling's Story!

"My sister and I were really into Rice Krispies Treats. Mom decided to make some for company that would arrive later in the afternoon. My mom hated to read recipes when she could just figure out how to make a dish on her own. Well, the treats Mom made that day were less than successful so she decided to add more ingredients and turn her concoction into a cake. That wasn't quite right either, so she added some more stuff and made these really thin, strange-looking cookies that were FANTASTIC! Our company arrived and was so impressed that they wanted the recipe, which my sister and I thought was very funny!

In business, you can create some predictability when you follow the recipe, but you can also miss out on intuitive genius. My mom always made fun, interesting, unique and wonderful dishes because she allowed her creativity to guide her; as an entrepreneur...I try to do the same thing!"
