You are able to understand the strengths and weaknesses of each member of your team, and you find a way to work with each person in a way that brings out their strengths and improves the team as a whole. It’s actually a good thing that you are such a successful businesswoman, as you do really enjoy the finer things in life and are driven to be financially successful.

You are friendly and carry yourself with grace in any social situation. You have a quick and intelligent mind and you are not afraid to show affection to those around you.
