Acting may have catapulted Jessica Alba to stardom, but the 34-year-old beauty has proven to excel not just in Hollywood, but also in the boardroom. That’s exactly why the Honest Co. and Honesty Beauty founder is one star we’ll also gladly turn to for motivating words.

So what advice does the entrepreneur and mother of two daughters have for girls everywhere? “I think just how important it is to be supportive of each other. There are so many haters out there and it’s just so hard to actually do anything—getting anything off the ground or doing anything that you’re actually proud of,” she tells InStyle. “I think if you just surround yourself with people that can support you when it’s tough, but then also support you when you’re having a good moment. It’s important just to surround yourself with the right people and also be cognizant of supporting people, especially women. I mean, it’s hard out there.”

We're already feeling well-equipped to take over the world.
