“My husband has always been the one that’s always going to be the one talking to me,” says Jill Bezos, who moved from California to California in 2007.
“I can tell he’s just as excited to be around me as I am.”
Bezos, a 23-year-old college student, says her first real date, at age 24, was with her boyfriend.
“We had a great time, and we both liked each other,” she says.
But she was soon overwhelmed with demands of her work and a new family.
Bezos says she spent years feeling isolated and lonely.
She says she was also the victim of cyberbullying.
But when she met her first boyfriend in his 20s, he changed everything.
He was an entrepreneur and he had a vision.
He wanted to create a lifestyle that would give him control over his life and his finances.
And for the first time, he could take on the responsibilities of being the boss.
The result was Bezos’ first job, at a small tech startup called Hyperlapse.
Hyperlapses employs 30 people and the company is one of the few to actually be a real company, operating like a boutique in Silicon Valley.
Hyperlapse, which began in 2015, is now an online marketplace for home decor, appliances, furniture and other home decor items.
It’s a $1.2 billion business that employs more than 300 people in the U.S. And its growing customer base is one reason the company’s valuation is skyrocketing.
“It’s been such a ride for us,” says CEO David Ragan, who was previously CEO of the global marketing company Quicken Loans.
“It’s made a huge impact in the industry.”
It was during this time that Bezos decided to take on another responsibility that was daunting.
She wanted to be an editor for a local news site.
But the first thing she realized was that her career path had been blocked by a college education.
“I realized that I needed to be better at this,” she recalls.
So, she went to a conference for journalists, where she got a great internship and landed a job at a major news site in Santa Cruz, California.
After that, Bezos made it to a graduate school program at Stanford University, where her passion for journalism led her to write for a variety of publications, including The Atlantic.
She was there for six years before landing a position at BuzzFeed, where the company has become a force in online content.
In 2018, Bezzos became BuzzFeed’s chief content officer.
She describes her role as “an entrepreneur in a global marketplace.”
She’s also a board member at an investment firm and is the author of the new book, “The Big One: How to Make Money as a Woman in the Age of Trump.”
She is also a vocal critic of President Donald Trump.
In 2018, she wrote a letter to President Trump that became a national anthem.
“Trump is destroying the fabric of the country.
It is a time when we need to be loud, not timid, and to speak out,” she wrote.
But she says she’s not averse to sharing her opinions and even speaking her mind, because she feels it’s important to her to be heard.
“My biggest fear is that he will have his way, and if he does, I am going to lose my job, my life, my career, my family, my friends, my community, and ultimately my soul,” she writes.
“We are living in an era where people feel so isolated, and they are afraid to speak up,” she adds.
And the fact that people can no longer even communicate through text messages means there’s a fear that a lot of things will be taken away.
The day after she signed the letter, she woke up in her office with a bad case of a cold.
Her husband was at work, but she didn’t want to go.
But when she looked in the mirror, she realized she was a bit dazed.
“That was a good sign,” she said.
She had been on the couch for two hours and felt like she was floating.
She went to work, and then to the bathroom, where two of her friends had a discussion.
“Then we went to the bar and had a couple beers, and the bartender came over and said, ‘Oh, I know what you need to drink,'” she says, laughing.
“And I said, Well, I’m sorry.
What I really need is something with a little less alcohol in it.”
And so, Bezos started the first ever “hotwife” party.
It was held at her husband’s home and it turned out to be one of her biggest hits.
“Our friends and I were all so drunk and drunk, we had a lot to drink,” she remembers.
She and her friends made it through the party, which ended up being a hit at her local watering hole.
