I posted this to MY FACEBOOK PAGE yesterday. I found it funny because Oprah posted the photo along with The Words:
“Here I am “CEO-ing” in my new office at OWN in LA!!”
Now, I know for a fact that is not Oprah’s real office. It’s not cushy enough for a Billion Dollar CEO. The Only Thing That was probably Oprah’s in this office is the bottle of water.
But what really intrigued me is that after I posted it, with my response that it wasn’t her real office, the responses I received back were odd to me. I thought the majority of people would also laugh and find the photo funny.
However, the majority of the responders thought that Oprah was being humble and she didn’t need a big fancy office. They enjoyed seeing Oprah this way and being able to think of Oprah and this humble down to earth person.. It actually gave me a revelation..
People would prefer to see you living on humble means. They would prefer to be able to identify with you. No wonder Beyonce is around here talking about how she sweats and blows snot bubbles. Celebrities actually need to do and say certain things in order for the mass to humanize them…
