Career Advice From American Apparel's CEO

Chelsea Grayson is the CEO of the clothing company American Apparel. She has gone from being a law student to leading a fashion company as a single mum. In an article about her career path, she gave an insight into the way that she sees leadership, decision making and her career.

“I have very specific ideas about things. I see the world in a particular way and I like to impart that and it’s hard to do as effectively when you’re not running it.

You have to stand up, you need to think before you speak and you need to always have your ears open and actively listen to what smart people are saying around you.

You have to be confident in the decisions that you’ve made because if you’re not, people can sense it. People look to leaders to make the right decision and to stand by them.

“You have to treat your career as a public company. And you’re the CEO and chairman and you owe a fiduciary duty to the chairman. And that’s you.”
