The Hypocrisy Of Men

“You wouldn’t treat your mother/daughter/sister like that, would you?” is a common question most men have heard, but if we only take care of the women connected to us by blood, there will always be other men who will treat them poorly.

  1. Involve yourself in decisions big and small: Beyoncé started her own company, Parkwood Entertainment, to have complete control over her brand and to show women they could take matters into their own hands.
  2. Surround yourself with good people: Beyoncé surrounds herself with smart people who help spark the creative process and who help her make sure everything gets done.
  3. Do the unexpected: Defying expectations, Beyoncé released an album with no previous marketing and that album debuted at #1 on the Billboard U.S. chart and later earned an Album of the Year nod at the Grammy’s.
  4. Stand by your ideals: Beyoncé doesn’t shy away from discussing politics, race or gender inequality. She donates and stands strongly behind causes she cares about, even incorporating messages into her music.
  5. Control the narrative: Beyoncé is notoriously tight-lipped when it comes to the press and social media — and this means she’s in utter control of how her brand is presented to the world.
