Blake Lively has responded to Martha Stewart

Martha Stewart made headlines last week by calling Blake Lively’s decision to start her own lifestyle blog ‘stupid’.

Blake has responded to Martha Stewart’s comments that she should ‘stick to acting’ by saying she feels it is possible to follow both career paths.

“I want to have my own path professionally and even as she said, I’m an actress. I’m doing something totally different so now I sort of have two careers going on and it’ll be interesting to see how it all pans out. But really what it is, is I have two passions. And I think ultimately, I will always be doing both, but one is going to be paying the bills better than the other.”

Blake went on to say, “Who doesn’t want to be Martha Stewart? Martha Stewart has been a huge inspiration to me my entire life.”

CEO of $1 billion tech company steps down to spend more time with his family

Max Schireson , CEO of a billion dollar company and a married father-of-three, would listen as his female counterparts were questioned on keeping a healthy work and family balance, and wondered why the same was never asked of him.

So, tired of spending more time on planes flying around the world on business than he was with his wife and kids, Max announced he was stepping down from his role of CEO at database company MongoDB.

“Life is about choices. Right now, I choose to spend more time with my family and am confident that I can continue to have a meaningful and rewarding work life while doing so,” Max wrote on his blog.

While Max and his family stood to become phenomenally wealthy if he had stayed in his position, he had this to say about his choice.

“I have three wonderful kids at home, aged 14, 12 and 9, and I love spending time with them: skiing, cooking, playing backgammon, swimming, watching movies or Warriors or Giants games, talking, whatever.”

“I have an amazing wife who also has an important career: she is a doctor and professor at Stanford.”
