While working on my master’s degree in Eastern Philosophy, I started a tshirt/postcard/bookmark company called “Hot Girls Read” hoping to earn a little extra mula to pay for my twizzler and Sierra Navada habit, and my rather large school loan.
I ordered 1000 postcards and sold 10. I ordered a run of 24 american apparel jersey shirts and sold 8. I gave the bookmarks away for free.
It wasn’t the most successful business endeavor, but it was fun working on and I never lost my love for the sentiment…empowering women to flaunt their intellect instead of their bod; giving the geeky gal reason to hold her head up high; helping young girls see there is so much more to being attractive than just looking like a covergirl.
This week I saw on pinterest the quote print, “Smart is the new sexy”. I leaped out of my seat. Yes!
And while my heart was cheering, the Spirit brought back to mind to my college days and the little flop of a business I tried to create for beer money.
Why not make it a printable?
So I did.
Here is to all my gorgeous and geeky girls out there who would rather build a fort in a library than punish their bodies on a treadmill, clutching onto Us Weekly.
Smart is the new sexy and hot girls read.
