Like Beckham, Mouret has a joint venture with Simon Fuller’s 19 Entertainment, which also has Fashionair.com in its portfolio, among other things. Aside from creating the Spice Girls, Fuller is also the business manager for Beckham and her husband. “American Idol” is one of the TV programs Fuller has created and produced.
Interestingly, as high powered as Beckham has become, her schoolgirl days of being bullied inadvertently helped shape the businesswoman she now is. “I’ve always been driven. I was mentally and physically bullied when I was at school and that gave me a very thick skin.…The only reason for me bringing that up is I have always been a fighter,” she said. “I have always had to work very, very hard with everything I do. That is just my work ethic. That’s just me. That’s my DNA.”
