With a new baby and buzzing career, Blake Lively has a lot going on.  

But Blake’s responsibilities of motherhood and career aren’t slowing her down or deferring future goals.

The 27-year-old actress recently shared with Britain’s Stylist magazine that she wants to go to Harvard Business School.

“I have a dream to go to Harvard Business School, and one of these days I will do that … in my spare time!” she stated.

LIvely is joining on the re-emerging conversation about women in the workforce.

“There are a lot of women in business, but they don’t get enough opportunities,” she said.  

She continued, “If you look at the facts, women spend the most on e-commerce sites, yet less than 30 percent of the companies that venture capitalists fund are female-driven, even though female-run companies are the most successful. Women connect with other women. So why are we are not looking at the numbers?”

In recent months, female celebrities have made explicit statements regarding contemporary women’s issues.  Most notably, Patricia Arquette’s Oscars speech addressed the wage gap and women’s rights issues.

Blake Lively’s dreams of going to Harvard Business School fall in line with other female celebs who are balancing career and motherhood.  For instance, January Jones stated she is happy being a single mother while managing a career.

Rock on, Blake Lively.  Not only does the business world need you, but your enthusiasm and support is needed to inspire more women in the business sector.
