According to Kim’s website, though, her first public appearance has been scheduled for January 13 in Dubai, where she’s scheduled to join her makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic for a Masterclass tutorial.

2. Jimmy Kimmel’s Halloween prank where he gets parents to tell kids he ate all their candy and film it has become a favorite Halloween tradition, and this year is no exception. Except THIS year, he also pulled the prank on his own two-year-old daughter, Jane. “Remember all the candy we got? Well, Daddy ate all of it,” he says to her. “No! You didn’t,” she replied, and continued to shut him down. Can’t fool her!
3. Get ready to cry at Shay Mitchell’s emotional PLL goodbye video. The PLL squad has been wrapping up the final days of filming on the series, and Shay, who plays Emily, has contributed a “Farewell Letter” video on her YouTube page to commemorate the final wrap of shooting. “Sad, anxious, excited, terrified, inspired, gratified, nervous, unsure, proud, upset, accomplished, relieved, devastated, lucky,” she says, trying to sum up her feelings while sobbing. “I don’t know what my life would’ve looked like without Pretty Little Liars… I can’t believe it’s over.” GET US SOME KLEENEX, STAT.

4. A huge lawsuit against Wen hair products is going ahead. A $26 million dollar class action suit against the infomercial-famous products from women claiming the products are causing baldness has been approved to go forward, according to The Cut. If a US District Court judge approves it now, six million people could get settlements ranging from $25 to $20,000. An attorney in the class action has said the products are like “using lotion to wash your hair.” Wen stands by the safety of its products and says because “the process of litigation is time consuming and costly, we made a business decision to pursue a settlement and put this behind us so that we can focus on delivering quality products.”
5. Ronda Rousey has announced she’ll be retiring soon. As Ronda preps to make her UFC return on December 30, she’s also prepping to wind down her fighting career, telling Ellen “I’m wrapping it up. This is definitely one of my last fights.” The amazing athlete has said she’s been training twice a day since the beginning of August and feels like she’s “in super ninja good mode.” We’ll miss you, Ronda!
6. Quote of the day: “Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.” Wise words to keep in mind on this #WisdomWednesday.

It can be intimidating to step out on your own and build a business from the ground up. As part of our collaboration with Office Depot, we're talking with Selfmade alum and solopreneur Colette Lawrence, the faith-based motivator and relationship builder behind The M.E.E. Movement, about ways in which women in business can find success.
B + C: How did you know M.E.E. Movement was your business to start?
The M.E.E Movement represents motivation, empowerment, and encouragement for women. It is what represents me. I did not know at first that it was my business to start, but then the thought of monetizing what I loved came to me. It scared me, however. I registered the business in July 2020 and have been slowly building my wings since.
B + C: What's one strategy that's helped you start your business?
Thinking through and researching what the requirements are to start my business, and then asking questions of people who are in the business. Not all advice worked; however, it helped me to figure out what I needed to do and not to do.
B + C: Did you always know life coaching would be your entrepreneurial path?
(Smiles) No, I did not. I 'stumbled" on it. I knew that people were always coming to me for advice and I found that I loved having conversations with them, especially with women, young and old.
B + C: What was your most valuable takeaway from Selfmade?
My most valuable takeaway was the first day of training: Get out of your own way. There were a lot of great moments and important takeaways from every presenter. However, getting out of my own way, pushing past doubts, was for me my most valuable takeaway. Doing something that I had never done before took courage. If I do not focus on what is happening with me mentally then I cannot deliver to my clients successfully.
B + C: What's one piece of advice you would give to female entrepreneurs on the brink of starting?
Get out of your head. You have something to offer. You have what you need to succeed so go ahead and do it.
B + C: How do you stay motivated?
I stay motivated by listening to music and listening to motivational speakers, and sometimes someone will just reach out and talk about the impact that I made in their life. That adds the extra juice or sauce I need to pummel through the day.
B + C: What's your best organizational tip?
Keep a diary and journal. It's the best way for me to keep organized and it also provides a source motivation as I record not only my "losses" but my wins as well.
B + C: Who inspires you in the entrepreneurial space?
Shirley Toliver – She motivates and empowers and makes me always want to show up.
B + C: What has receiving the Office Depot scholarship to Selfmade done to help you start or grow your business?
The scholarship was a blessing in that all the areas that were covered offered valuable information that I needed, from social media to HR. As a new business owner, I needed to know this to increase my own personal awareness in what it takes to run a successful business. The candidness of the presenters made it easy to see myself in their shoes and helped me to realize that I can also get there.
