8 Reasons Why Jessica Alba Is Hollywood’s Girl Boss
If you don’t see a lot of Jessica Alba in Hollywood these days, don’t worry. She’s busy not only in taking care of her family but also in building an empire. She’s made it to the White House and Forbes list. She’s made a lifestyle brand that is now worth billions! For all these reasons – and more – she fits the bill of the ultimate Hollywood girl boss.
1. She co-founded a multi-billion-dollar business
Jessica Alba is no ordinary entrepreneur, having co-founded Honest Company, currently one of the popular and biggest-selling companies offering non-toxic products, especially for babies. Forbes estimates her 2016 net worth at a whopping $340 million! Honest, on the other hand, has an estimated value of almost $2 billion. No surprise she’s one of the top 50 self-made women on Forbes List.
2. Her style is on point
Jessica Alba doesn’t grace every red carpet event, but whenever she does, count on her to make it as one of the best dressed. Her style is always a reflection of her personality: go getting, edgy, fun, and unpredictable. She also loves to invest in basic but flexible and timeless pieces like tailored blazers.
3. She takes care of her health
Despite her busy schedule, she always finds time to take care of her health. She’s a huge fan of delicious and nutritious smoothies like her skinny detox smoothie, which ended up in TV shows because, well, just look at how amazing she is! Now before you complain it’s not going to cost you a lot of money, her green smoothie is simple: combine peeled cucumber, kale, celery sticks, cored and seeded apples, ginger, lemons, natural sweetener, and frozen watermelon in a blender. That’s it!
4. She has an excellent work-life balance
With all the roles she plays as a mother, wife, actress, and a businesswoman, I bet you’re wondering how she manages it all. Like you and me, she struggles with time management too, but she reminds herself with to-do lists or schedules. Whenever she can, she tries to do two things at once like bringing her family to charity events. Most of all, she gets help, like a babysitter when she needs to go out and her creative Honest team.
5. She knows how to have fun
Although Jessica Alba tries to follow her schedule, she doesn’t really sweat the small stuff. She forgives herself and others for the little mistakes and instead focuses on something more positive. Most of all, she still knows how to spell F-U-N.
6. She has a close-knit set of friends
Alba’s friends are a mixture, from her company to her stylist, celebrity friends, and childhood pals. No matter, she keeps her best friends close and takes the time to go out with them whenever she can. She also keeps in touch with them during events and on social media.
7. She is happily married to a great man
Cash Warren and Jessica Alba have definitely come a long way since they first met on the set of Fantastic Four. Now they’ve been married for almost ten years, which we know by Hollywood standards feels like 20! Both are blessed with two beautiful children, Honor Marie Warren and Haven Garner Warren. Cash and Jessica still go out on dates at least once a week, travel with the kids, and are never afraid to show their affection whether it’s a kiss or a hug in public.
8. She is an author
As part of building her lifestyle brand and as a way of sharing her personal journey, she authored The Honest Life, which continues to receive positive reviews online and offline.
Over the past few years, Jessica Alba has worked hard to promote a healthier, more sustainable way of living. If you want to get more information about her advocacy, just watch this video (bonus: you’ll learn to prepare her skinny detox smoothie!):
