What you may not know is that each Barbie for President doll comes with a tip sheet ginned up by the White House Project, a group encouraging women to run for public office. Barbie, whose career includes a stint as a business executive, advises leaders and future leaders to:
- List 10 things you want to accomplish, and then go for it!
- Champion a cause you believe in.
- Challenge yourself to try something new. You can do it!
- Treat yourself and others with respect.
- Act as a role model.
- Support your people when they have a setback, and show them how to try again.
- Encourage them to dream and to make their dreams come true.
