Beyoncé Covers Fast Company Magazine

Given Beyoncé’s investments across fashion, music, and technology, she’s definitely the type of woman we want to get business advice from.

Luckily, Fast Company tapped the superstar for her business acumen in their new issue, while telling other companies what they can learn from her.

Beyoncé was ahead of the curve with her visual albums, recognizing the demand for videos in today’s society. This timeliness is the first of many keys to her success.

The article then goes on to explain the Grammy winner’s ability to own her narrative (ahem, the elevator incident), bravely cause a commotion (remember when cops wanted to boycott Beyoncé?), market herself well, and live on the element of surprise.

Those efforts combined with discipline and talent makes some damn good lemonade.

Take notes.
