Sara Blakely Teaches Self-Made Entrepreneurship | Official Trailer | MasterClass


Imma tell you something. Every person in their life
has had a million-dollar idea. No doubt. No doubt. It’s just, are you
going to take action? You definitely do not need
to go to business school to become an entrepreneur. I started Spanx as a
frustrated consumer. I had $5,000 set
aside in savings. I simply wanted to be able to
wear white pants to a party and have nothing
show underneath it. The entire time, everyone
told me no and said, this is not a great idea. But let me tell you one thing. That means you’ve come up
with something brand new. Take it as a compliment. This MasterClass
class is for anyone out there who’s in search
of an idea, has an idea and doesn’t know
what to do next, is wanting to start a
business, or has already started a business. I guess, in some
way, I’m saying, I think this class
is for everybody. Before I started
Spanx, I actually was selling fax
machines door to door. I got kicked out of
building after building. And one day, I thought,
I’m in the wrong movie. Like call the producer,
call the director. This is not my life. What happened? I can tell you the things that
I focused on very early on. Three things– make it,
sell it, build awareness. People are looking for that,
I want to be a $100 million company in the
first year and I’m going to raise as much
money as I possibly can. And just check in
with yourself on that, and be willing to start small. [MUSIC PLAYING] Why are you doing this? What’s the why? And who are you in the world? Share that part of the story. I mean, the more vulnerable
you’re willing to be, the deeper the connection
will be with your consumers. I hope that you’re tuning
in, and you’re seeing me, and I become the
example that you needed to say, check, yes you can. I’m Sara Blakely, and
this is my MasterClass. [MUSIC PLAYING]
