At 43-years-old, Tyra Banks is known for her successful modeling career and business savvy, and she tells USA Today that she learned the importance of standing out from the crowd as a teen model.

“I really had a natural way of walking that was a little different, sometimes a little wacky, and I would notice people smiling,” says Banks who even got standing ovations in the midst of fashion shows. “I was like ‘Oh wow. They like this. This is my signature walk.’ So that’s when I understood. … that differentiation was important.”

Banks, who is now mother to a 1-year-old son, York, offers this valuable advice to those seeking to break “through the clutter.”

“Once your brand is established, Banks says, “the most important thing is to watch your competition and to see if your brand that is now very successful is being copied because when people see something that’s good, everybody jumps on that bandwagon.”
