    Is Jordan a success?

    Interesting question, virgin media seem to think so. A while back they had a link on there sight "Successes who never went to college" Or something like that, there were people like Alan Sugar, Richard Branson but Jordan was there, which got me thinking. I understand she has more money than my family but surely there's more to success than how much money you have. What do you think?

    Whether you like her or not, she is a success, she's turned her life into a big PR drive, and its been bloody successful. Sickening, infuriating, downright annoying, but successful.

    They all said "Hallo," and felt awkward and unhappy suddenly, because it was a sort of good-bye they were saying, and they didn't want to think about it.

    Well, for mine it's hard to argue with the amount of money she has made off her own back, insofar that she has not simply been presented with her fortune. I can think of people I admire a lot more (most people tbh) and would not be particular proud of her "success" if I were her, but it's hard to say she is not a successful person, whether you like her or not, which I most certainly do not.

    Define success...

    If you call making a truckload of money and being known by most of the UK a success, then yeah, by all means she is one, but if it is about being happy, then I'm not so sure.

    Maybe she's been successful at making money but what about success as a human being?

    Tbh that is a pretty subjective question. I don't think there is a lot of difference between those two statements though...obviously depends a lot on what you think makes a "human being". I would however, never say she was a "good" person, though that is just my own opinion, I'm sure there are countless fans of hers who would disagree.

    Hmm, interesting statistic, she's sold more books in the UK than Bill Clinton and Nelson Mandela put together, makes me feel a bit pessimistic about the British public tbh.

    Haha, the working class hero bit was a joke, the first bit was true though

    She's compelte vermin btw, should be incinerated, doesn't mean she's not a success, though. You can't measure success by what you would like people to be.

    Good question, one I'm nowhere near clever enough to answer.

    Surely you must know what you yourself class as a success?
