Mindy Kaling Rocks. (And a clip from American Express Inspiring Women).

I love Mindy Kaling.  I didn’t always.  I found her really annoying in The Office.  But as I witnessed more of her work, I realized that her character, Kelly, had allowances to be both quirky and annoying.  That was when it hit me that Ms. Kaling was a brilliant comedian and writer.

This brief commercial from American Express is profound.  It shares Ms. Kaling’s story and inspires women to go after their dreams.  Kudos to AE for both their marketing efforts and inspirational message.

P.s. I love that she has 2 alarm clocks and grabs jelly beans right before breakfast.
