We all know there are beautiful women, seemingly, on every single block. But, when you find one who also happens to be sharp and successful and inspiring, well, that's when you know you've caught the ultimate unicorn.
Guys, meet model Heidi Cortez — who is that unicorn!
Heidi, who has modeled and owned a number of her own businesses for years, even writing two books, with the first one, entitled "Bedtime Stories”, rising to Barnes & Noble's Best Sellers list thanks to its booming popularity, is what you call a badass.

In addition to her book, business and modeling success, Heidi Cortez now works on a project called The Model Adviser, where she coaches both kids and adults through her online program.
With such talent, beauty and brains, we talked with Heidi to reveal 10 ways in which we can get more sh-t done... because, really, we could use a little motivation from a pretty woman.
Do the job yourself when you can. It's not worth it to tell someone how to do it if it's an important task you can do yourself. Sometimes, we need help, but if you don't, just get it done right the first time. There have been too many situations when entrepreneurs are let down by someone not getting the job done properly, or worse, not at all.
Always educate and advance yourself. Learn new business strategies from online courses, friends and YouTube. You can seriously learn how to do anything from YouTube!
Don't kick back when your business is doing well... keep going! Think of more ideas, inventions, or ways to make your business more advanced! Or use the money and time to move onto another project.
When thinking of new business ideas, I always tell my friends to think of a plan where they can make money while they sleep. A good way to go about this is an online business. The Internet never closes!
If times get tough and you're not working as much, or not at all, still treat the day as a normal work day. Get up at your normal work day hour and use the time to do research and networking, at the very least. Never sleep in or lose motivation.
Keep up on your social media, especially if you're a business owner. Social media can be a life-changer. People have made millions of dollars from having interesting Instagram accounts where they were able to turn it into a successful business.
Don't get distracted by what others are doing or not doing, or other innocent excuses. Focus on yourself and the end results. This goes for phone and social media distractions, too. You'll get so much more done.
Stop hoping and start doing. I hear a lot of people say, "so and so is so lucky" or, "I wish I could do something like that." The truth is, you can, you just have to work harder. Opportunities don't always happen, you have to create them.
If you're busy, hustle on the side towards your dream business or goals. A little everyday adds up over time, even if it's only 10 minutes. Your future depends on it.
I believe great attitudes lead to great outcomes. Even when it's tough, stay focused. Count your blessings, not your problems.
