Inspirational women: Katharine Sise -Turn your talent into cash


© Katharine Sise
New York jewellery designer, author and TV host Katharine Sise has launched 'Creative Girl' the book that tells you how you can achieve your dream career.

Finding your dream job doesn't happen over night - for the most part, having a job you look forward to in the mornings is a luxury, but it is something you can achieve. A lot of hard work, research and hours of networking, are just some of the key steps toward making it in your chosen career, but passion is an absolute must have.

Katharine Sise's success is an inspiration to all aspiring creatives and budding entrepreneurs:

Fed up of waitressing, at 24 Sise turned her life around, launching her eponymous jewellery line which enjoyed near instant success after being hailed as a 'designer to watch' in US magazine Lucky.

Soon her jewellery line was appearing in US magazines from Vogue to Marie Claire which led to celebrity clients including Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, Beyonce, Anne Hathaway and Drew Barrymore. The demand for her jewellery design ideas has led to designing jewellery for Gap's national advertising campaigns, and last year she launched Katherine Sise for Target.

Sise's charisma and determination have led to co-hosting shows on the Home Shopping Network and appearing as a lifestyle consultant on numerous US channels, where she advises on beauty and fashion. She also contributes as an expert on career and business blogs. 

Her can do attitude is something we can all admire- and now we can learn the secrets to her success!
