Stephen Curry will soon be taking business pointers from his wife Ayesha Curry.
“I haven’t talked about this publicly, but I’m taking this Harvard Business School online course thing right now,” Ayesha, 30, said on Girlboss Radio. “And I’ve stuck with this so I’m really, I’m really proud of myself.”
“But one of the things that I just learned in the class is like, it’s the way you delegate is very important as a leader and to be inclusive and open and not to create consensus bias in your work space. It’s something that I’m looking forward [to] implementing into my own business because I know sometimes I get really passionate about an idea and I tend to advocate and I’m learning now that it’s not necessarily good to be an advocator and so I’m, I’m just really excited to kind of like refocus and not advocate so much that people can give me their opinions.”
Ayesha began making her name for herself as an actress and later moved on to creating her own products, working with brands on product endorsements and partnerships, hosting gigs and writing books. The mom of three was previously a speaker at Forbes’ Under 30 summit in 2017.
But she won’t be asking her two daughters and one son if they want to follow in her footsteps or NBA star Stephen’s.
“I read ‘Becoming’ and Michelle Obama said not to ask children what they want to be when they grow up because what does that mean, right?” she said. “Like then they have this ideal of something they have to achieve and then they don’t achieve it. And then it creates this anxiety and this ongoing thing of like, ‘I have to achieve this and if I don’t, then what?’ I said, what are you interested in? It’s always in my mind, ‘Don’t ask her what she wants to be.’”
