Like most of us, tech mogul Randi Zuckerberg grew up loving the "Star Wars" movies. But unlike most of us, Zuckerberg actually learned a valuable life lesson from Luke, Leia and Han. (Aside from "lightsabers are cool," of course.)
"I think there's so much that we can learn from 'Star Wars,'" explains Zuckerberg, who cites the original trilogy's "groundbreaking technology" as a source of inspiration. In fact, Zuckerberg — the brain behind Zuckerberg Media and Dot Complicated — says that young entrepreneurs can also learn a few things from the grand scale and futuristic feel of the sci-fi space-opera.
"I would encourage entrepreneurs who are out there to think big," says Zuckerberg, who currently serves as a mentor on Oxygen's new series "Quit Your Day Job." "Try to think, 'What are going to be the big trends ten, fifteen, twenty years from now?' How can you launch something and get ahead of those trends today?"
Needless to say, Zuckerberg probably intends to share a few inspirational "Star Wars" tweets in honor of "Star Wars Day" — otherwise known as May 4th (as in "May the Fourth be with you"). But the one won't be doing on social media — either today or any other day — is use her least favorite hashtag.
"I feel like people really overuse the hashtag 'blessed,'" laughs Zuckerberg. "It's a huge pet peeve of mine, because I feel like they mostly use it to brag about their lives."
"I'm like, I'm sorry, but unless you just came from your kid's baptism or bar mitzvah, you are not allowed to use the hashtag ''#blessed.'"
