mental interests and abilities
She is highly interested in inner, subjective and personal issues, and her thinking is based more on feelings, intuition, personal experiences and prejudices, than on reason or logic. Intellectual abilities and accomplishments without heart or soul mean little to Venus. She is empathic and would be an excellent counselor, for she is a sensitive listener and deeply interested in people's feelings and inner life. In addition to psychology, Venus Williams is drawn to education, art, poetry, music or mythology. She is not particularly confident about speaking in public, but will open up and share her thoughts in small, intimate groups. Williams enjoys keeping a personal journal and reading the chronicles of others' lives and personal development.
Venus Williams thinks a great deal about her career, her reputation and public image, and the way she makes a contribution or impact on the world at large. Public speaking or communications of some other kind is likely to be an important aspect of the work Venus Williams does.
Venus Williams has a sharp tongue and ready wit, and she enjoys intellectual competition, problem solving, and demanding intellectual work. In a debate, she knows how to drive her point home. Venus Williams also possesses quick reflexes and dexterity and could be an excellent tennis or racquetball player. Any sport which involves a dynamic exchange between the players is a suitable arena for Williams.
Venus Williams has a great capacity for concentration, handling details, and learning about subjects others might find ponderous, too technical, or dry. She could easily become a teacher of some specialized skill or field of knowledge. Practical applications and techniques are her forte. In speech Venus Williams tends to be factual and to the point.
Williams will notice that the description below contradicts some of the statements made in the previous paragraphs. So far, Venus Williams' thinking was depicted as careful, conservative, methodical and possibly narrow or rigid, while the following information defines her mind as quick and innovative. Both are true! Venus Williams incorporates both ways of thinking - the inspired-inventive and the deductive-ordered. Here is a description of the more free-flowing aspect:
Independent and freethinking, Venus Williams dislikes being told what to do and how to do it, and she especially does not like being told how to think, for Venus insists on discovering her own truth. Venus Williams does well in a rather unstructured environment that allows her to make her own decisions and to respond to the needs of the moment, rather than following a routine, standardized way of doing things. She is also suited to a fast-paced atmosphere, which Williams finds exciting and stimulating. Her mind functions in an intuitive, nonlinear fashion and sudden insights and flashes of inspiration often come to her "out of the blue". Venus has an aptitude for science and new technologies are of particular interest to her. Venus Williams also has a penchant for astrology or other esoteric sciences.
Even though Williams can be a decisive and convincing speaker (as indicated earlier), she also has a highly imaginative and intuitive mind. This combination offers a number of possibilities: Venus could accurately articulate the images and fantasies she has, she could forcefully convince others of her own brand of idealism (or illusion!), or Venus Williams may alternate from being very clear and direct to being rather evasive or poetic. The following describes the more fluid, non-rational aspect of Williams' thinking.
Although Venus Williams' thinking is precise and logical, as described above, at times Williams can be quite the opposite. There may very well be periods of absentmindedness, building castles in the air, or ruminating over mystical, abstract or imponderable subjects, as discussed below.
Vague, confused thinking which can lead to miscommunication and misunderstandings can be a problem for Venus Williams, and she has to work at being as clear, honest and unambiguous in her dealings with others as she possibly can. Venus tends, also, to "go off the deep end" regarding spiritual philosophies, imaginative ideas, or theoretical speculation which may or may not have any real relevance or validity. Venus Williams should try to critically test out her ideas, or seek out a person whose judgment and character she respects, to use as a sounding board.
Never satisfied with the face value of anything, Venus is always probing beneath the surface for deeper reasons and hidden motives - though she rarely reveals her own. Venus Williams has a very suspicious, even paranoid, side. Her mind is penetrating and Venus Williams has an aptitude for research, investigative reporting or private investigation. She is keenly interested in the deeper aspects of the human psyche, with a sort of "x-ray vision" of the inner motivations and intentions of others. She is drawn to anything secret, hidden, or mysterious, and may pursue esoteric or occult studies. Williams is also a forceful and convincing speaker or writer, with the ability to influence people's thinking by the sheer power of her conviction.
Venus Williams has a strong desire to keep in contact with like-minded people and tends to discuss love relationships problems with them. Venus seems to be especially drawn to children and young people and is always welcomed and appreciated by them.

Venus Williams, a world-renowned tennis champion, is one of many investors investing millions of dollars into a unique woman-owned company called Ellevest – a digital investing platform and app that empowers women financially and helps them save for retirement. The founder of the company, Sallie Krawcheck, is known as one of the top women on Wall Street.
She made a name for herself when she worked at Citigroup and Bank of America, and the funding for her company will be used to develop financial planning services and portfolios designed for women professionals and entrepreneurs.
What exactly does Ellevest do?
Based in New York City, Ellevest helps women to get started with investing, but unlike other male-dominated companies, no minimum amount of money is required to get started. In addition, Ellevest makes the investing process very simple and easy to follow.
It’s also goal-based, rather than centered on the performance of a particular product or portfolio, and the algorithms factor in women’s superior longevity – which is about five years longer than that of men – and the fact that women tend to earn less than men during their careers.
Why women should invest
Sallie says that an important financial lesson that many fail to understand is that it’s never too early to begin investing. “Even if you’re thinking, ‘I don’t have a lot of money right now,’ you need to save for your future,” she says.
Her advice is that even if you can only contribute $50 or $100, start there.
She is very determined to “end the gender gap in investing and personal finance,” and has made it her life’s mission to unleash women’s financial power and get them invested in their biggest goals.
Venus comments, “I invested in Ellevest because I believe in women, and I believe in our potential, and I believe that its time to change the game.”
Venus Williams, sister of tennis champion Serena and a seven-time major champion and two-time US Open titlist herself, has played 11 matches on the women's tour this year. However, as the tennis world focuses its attention to the United States and the US Open in New York, Williams has again had to withdraw from competition due to a somewhat rare autoimmune disorder called Sjogren's syndrome. An autoimmune disorder means that your immune system mistakenly attacks your body's own cells and tissues. How did it affect Williams is the question, and what is her tennis future if any?
"(It is) an ongoing medical condition that affects my energy level and causes fatigue and joint pain. I enjoyed playing my first match here and wish I could continue but right now I am unable to. I am thankful I finally have a diagnosis and am now focused on getting better and returning to the court soon."

I want to thank Venus for coming forward. It will help those of us living with Sjogrens to get better understanding from others. I want to wish her well and good luck. I have been battling since 94 and have lupus, R.A., and other auto immune diseases as well. I just want to encourage her to join the Sjogrens foundation and let her know she is not alone.I too, told my doctor that I was going to be the first person to beat this! :) Thank you Delores (Dee) Hittlet

FITBOX Plus editor Michelle Mitchem posed a few good questions to the legendary tennis star and entrepreneur Venus Williams about her life, inspiration and her amazing fitness line Eleven By Venus. See what she has to say below and check out our exclusive partnership FITBOX here: Thika Box
Michelle Mitchem: You made your debut as a professional tennis player in 1994. That is a very long time ago. Did you know that you would become the sensation that the world knows you to be?
Venus Williams: I didn’t know I was going to be a sensation, but I had a lot of goals that I was working towards. I put in a lot of work and had the confidence that I would achieve my dreams.
MM: Tennis is a complex and simple sport. What is your favorite part of the game?
VW: My favorite part is winning! Losses are hard to take, but it makes me a better winner. I love the journey to winning.
MM: You have launched a fun and functional athletic clothing line - EleVen (that we proudly carry at FitBox). What inspired this venture?
VW: I got a letter in the mail when I was 18 saying, "Come to design school." By that time, I had already been pro for four years — I thought it was a great idea. [Venus studied fashion design at The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale.] Obviously after school, everyone dreams of having their own line. I was already an athlete, so active wear spoke to my soul. Being active is part of who I am every day, and I wanted to bring a new voice to it and combine fashion with performance.
MM: I notice a lot of functionality in your designs- seems perfect for working out, or hanging out. Can you share your vision when designing the line?
VW: It’s really organic. I sit down and sketch what I’d like to make happen, and then sit down with the EleVen team to figure out how it’ll actually get produced. Then, we go through the color process. One of the biggest challenges of the design process is actually color; you’ve already used all the colors you want to use or the ones you want to use might not work for that season. It seems like I’m always in the process to find another color on the spectrum of the rainbow. When you’re wearing something, you want it to perform, to be comfortable. The fit has to be there every single time so that your clothing doesn’t distract you when you’re playing or doing sprints. The fit process is ongoing, especially because we’re creating new SKUs [styles] all the time. It’s a lot of work.
MM: Can you paint the picture of the woman who wears EleVen?
VW: The EleVen woman is wonder woman, she pushes herself to strive for more; EleVen’s motto is ’10’ is just a number, but EleVen is a lifestyle.
MM: Can you describe EleVen in 3 words?
MM: In closing, what would you like our readers to know about Venus Williams and your clothing line – EleVen?
VW: You can reach your potential and your potential is limitless. Becoming an EleVen is not something you settle for; rather you should continue to push yourself.
