I first met Arian Simone, CEO of Fearless Mag and Public Relations guru, while on a shoot for Ford during Essence Black Women in Hollywood.

The Bomb Life Career 101: Don’t Turn Your Nose Up at Small Tasks; You Must be Impeccable with Small Things Before You are Entrusted with More

When I was an intern at New York magazine, my duties on day one were to open mail and pass out faxes. Was I overqualified to do these small tasks? Sure! And at the time, I resented the exercise. I have a degree from an Ivy League University! I thought. I should be writing cover stories! I harrumphed.
