Relationship Secrets from Fashion Guru Mary-Kate Olsen

Posted by Kelleher International on Dec 4, 2015 9:42:18 AM

s_bukley / Shutterstock.comMary-Kate Olsen married beau Olivier Sarkozy in a private ceremony over Thanksgiving weekend. While Olsen and Sarkozy might seem an unlikely pair, their relationship makes a great deal of sense: Olsen is a self-starter running her own successful design business and Sarkozy is a banker of French origin who resides in the United States. Sarkozy, brother to France’s former President, Nicolas Sarkozy, is used to paparazzi and the rigors of fame that follow Olsen.

The pair have been dating for about three years; if you ask us, this wedding is long overdue!

-Steve Jobs

 

The Apple Empire dominates the tech world even today, so one can’t help but wonder if Steve Jobs was right about what makes an entrepreneur successful. But what if this same concept was applied to relationships? Our matchmakers believe perseverance is part of what sets successful relationships apart from failed ones. From the time spent looking for that date to the actual hurdles that come between even the closest of partners, cool heads and a lot of patience are necessary to persevere as a couple. Replace the word “entrepreneurs” with the word “relationships,” and you can see how Jobs’ wisdom can be applied in your own life. So, what other love lessons can you learn from the tech visionary?
