Jennifer Lopez maintains her iconic status as mother, mogul and megastar. Currently, she is a judge on the 15th and final season of "American Idol"; preparing for her Vegas residency slated to open on January 20 (my birthday) at Planet Hollywood, she is also starring and producing the NBC crime drama, "Shades Of Blue" premiering on January 7. She also maintains multiple fashion lines and a home decor line.
There are priceless lessons to be mined from JLO's legendary career. Here are four big ones that just might help you achieve your dreams.

Lopez was also a trailblazer in building celebrity empires in the last 20 years, being one of the first to create signature fragrances, clothinglines (Sweetface was discontinued in 2009) and even a home décor line at Kohl’s Department Stores. Lopez recognized a need in the industry and captialized on it, both creating opportunities for hispanics as well as all-important representation.
Embrace your fabulousity. It's a near impossibility to find a bad picture of Jennifer Lopez. As a celebrity, she understands that her part of her job is to look pretty and play dress up for events, and thus she has all but trademarked 24/7 fabulosity. One of her most famous fashion looks was early in her career when she wore a scandalous jungle print Dolce and Gabbana dress to the 2000 Grammys (see slideshow below). JLO has giving us fashion forward realness on the red carpet ever since. Lesson: If you look like a billion dollars, one day you might be worth a billion dollars.
