Oprah Winfrey at the Golden Globes and 3 Lessons for Entrepreneurs


Smart entrepreneurs should always be learning and Oprah Winfrey’s speech at the Golden Globes 2018 award ceremony has three lessons for entrepreneurs. These lessons include:

  • It is not lost on me that there are some little girls watching me.
  • Speaking your truth is the most powerful tool you have.
  • A new day is on the horizon


Take a moment now to look at these lessons and the discussion that accompanies them. By reading the discussion you will see pieces of information that are useful to entrepreneurs at all levels of business experience and in all industry types.


It is not lost on me that there are some little girls watching me.


Entrepreneurs must always be mindful that there are always people watching them. There are always young entrepreneurs and want to be entrepreneurs who look at you with stars in their eyes and dreams of becoming entrepreneurs. No matter how hard your day is, no matter how much you struggle to keep the doors open and the business running, there is someone looking at you and watching your struggle. Be encouraged by this fact. Know that your struggle is not in vain and that the lessons you learn and the choices you make may help another entrepreneur to succeed and thrive.

Speaking your truth is the most powerful tool you have.


Each entrepreneur has a story to tell. No matter what your product or service, you sell it in a way that is unique to you and your business. You have your own way to speak to the world. You have your own story of entrepreneurship. You have your own way of reaching customers and of satisfying their needs. Your truth and your honesty in dealing with customers is an invaluable resource. Treat it like the precious thing it is. Value your story and its importance to your customers and they will value it as well.


A new day is on the horizon.


Entrepreneurs must always remember that each day is a new day. Yesterday may be full of mistakes, errors in judgment, and customer service disasters. But today is a new day. It is a new chance to shine, to grow and to prosper. Be encouraged, stand strong and know that each day is a new chance. In addition, there are always new ways of doing things. There are new laws. There are new technologies. There are new societal expectations. Entrepreneurs must always be mindful that each day is new and business does not remain stagnant.

It is important for entrepreneurs to remember to learn all they can and to can all they learn. Oprah Winfrey’s Golden Globes speech was full of lessons for smart entrepreneurs. Learn them and use them well.
