1. I’m going to need a really extraordinary woman for next week to match (probably not top) this week (Ingrid Vanderveldt)… help? I’m not talking about looks (because Ingrid Vanderveldt said so herself she isn’t a model), I’m talking about the whole person in terms of everything that’s not appearance.

"Re: Hugh Hefner – He was a total gentleman. I was actually  really scared, but he’s a total gentleman and a couple of my buddies  here who are also friends with him, they’re like, “You need to be a  centerfold.”  I was like, “I don’t think so. I don’t think that’s going  to happen.”  So Hugh and I had a joke about that.”

"Ingrid Vanderveldt is one unique woman – part businesswoman, part internet host, part daredevil, part motivational speaker.
Ingrid is a rare person, a true force of nature who manages energize  every room she steps into, and inspire every person she meets.  Given  that a lot of Ingrid’s hobbies – motorcycle racing, skydiving, are  exactly the type of activities I try to avoid, I was resistant at first,  but was almost immediately won over by her incredible kindness,  generosity, and spirit.” -http://www.girl2watch.com/editors-note-your-guide-to-girl2watch-12/

  12. When I was studying architecture, I was in the studios at like three in the morning. One of my professors came in and said, “I know you’re in here working really late at night. You’re here until three in the morning working on your projects.” And he goes, “Don’t you think that’s unfair?” And I said, “What do you mean it’s unfair?” And he goes, “Well, you know, you’re a girl.You’re really supposed to be a wife and be a mother and you’re really kind of taking up somebody else’s space that could legitimately go out there and do architecture.” And I was like, “You’ve got to be kidding me.” I couldn’t believe he said that.

    At the moment that he said it I was mad and really upset at the same time. I was like, “I can’t believe that someone’s actually saying this to me.” And I made the decision at that point in my life, I was like, “I’m going to prove it to him and I’m going to prove it to myself that I’m going to be wildly successful, whatever it is I choose to do and right now doing architecture, so I’m going to be best in the class.”

    So I worked my butt off, and sure enough I ended up being top of the class, and that same professor was a judge for a design competition at the end of the year and he ended up taking my designs to that competition and they won. But it was a real changing point for me where I was like, “This is probably going to happen again, again and again.” And so I just made the decision then – “I have to do really well and I’ve got to do really good for the girls.” That was a big turning point for me.

“I think any woman, if you reach any level of success, you feel a  sense of responsibility and an obligation to make sure other women are  really successful”, says self-described “Supergirl” Ingrid Vanderveldt. Super indeed! Currently the host of the daily web show for entrepreneurs called On the Road with iV,  Ingrid has interviewed Hugh Hefner, the Maloofs, Howard Schultz,  Michael Dell and countless other business leaders, all done in her  uniquely disarming style. In her free time, this real-life wonder woman  races Ducati motorcycles and has now done over forty sky-dives. Ingrid  channels that energy into her entire life, whether it be speaking to  groups, co-founding the Billionaire Girls Club, or her recent green tech  company AGT. This Girl2Watch is all about making it happen for herself  and others, and having a great time while she’s doing it.
