All entrepreneurs are different, does this doll represent your entrepreneur style?
Okay, okay I do work a full-time job but I’m also working part time as an Entrepreneur and when I am in my Entrepreneur shoes I can admit they are NOT the black stilettos the Entrepreneur Barbie struts around in. Aside from the fact I hate wearing high heels, I wouldn’t be wearing them while standing at my desk writing copy for clients or editing my most recent photo sessions. Nor would I be prancing around in a pink dress during those said photo shoots, because half the time I’m sitting on the ground or climbing on something to get the best angle.
I think it’s great the Mattel is drawing attention to the fact that the number of female entrepreneurs is steadily increasing. I just have one question, why the pink dress and stilettos? In 2012, more than 126 million women entrepreneurs were stating or running a new business in 67 economies, according to the Global Entrepreneur Monitor (GEM) 2012 Women’s Report. I bet only a handful were dressed like Mattel’s Entrepreneur Barbie.
So I give Mattel a thumbs up for recognizing Girls Rule the World and for offering the doll in a variety of ethnicities. And a thumbs down with the wardrobe selection.
You can purchase the Barbie Entrepreneur on Amazon.com.
Hopefully the African-American Entrepreneur Barbie will be available longer than the African-American Computer Engineer Barbie. I went to replace the one my daughter hijacked/destroyed and I can’t find it anywhere.
If you had to design a wardrobe for the Entrepreneur Barbie what would it be?
My Entrepreneur Barbie would be wearing dark black jeans, stylish flats with a nice blouse and blazer. That would be her go to wardrobe. But she would also have on hand I skirt and blouse and small heels and yoga pants and a t-shirt.
