Laurene Powell Jobs
“My relationship with money is that it's a tool to be self-sufficient, but it's not something that is a part of who I am.“
Laurene Powell Jobs is a businesswoman, executive and the founder of Emerson Collective, a social impact organization that, among other investing and philanthropic activities, advocates for policies concerning education and immigration reform, social justice and environmental conservation. Laurene inherited her fortune from that of her late husband, Steve Jobs, however that doesn't make her any less of an iconic businesswomen.
Her advice really reminds us that money shouldn't be the only reason you strive for success in life. No matter what money you have in your bank account it should never define you as a person. Instead, Laurene is choosing to give that money back to those who need it the most, defining herself as a philanthropist.
