Answers to the Martha Stewart Era Quiz
Which Martha Stewart era are you? If you took our quiz, you know we asked you some hard-hitting questions to get to the bottom of this once and for all. Did you tally your answers? Let’s find out if you’re a model Martha Stewart, a prison Martha Stewart, or something in between.
If you got mostly A’s … you’re Model Martha Stewart!
Before Martha Stewart dominated the world of food and crafts, she was a model. She started to model at the age of 15 and continued to do so throughout college at Barnard to supplement her income. She modeled for brands like Chanel and even did a commercial for Unilever. What a babe. See more photos of her work on Business Insider.
If you choose mostly A’s, that means you embody this time period in Martha’s young life. You’re independent, beautiful, and full of promise. You haven’t hit your stride yet, however, and that’s OK. Take the time to figure out what you want in life. Don’t forget to take care of yourself along the way, and try to cook for your friends and family as often as you can. The money will come, don’t stress too much.
If you got mostly B’s … you’re Magazine Martha Stewart!
After a stint in catering, Martha Stewart hit her stride in book publishing starting in 1982, and then magazine publishing in 1990 (Martha Stewart Living). A few years later in 1993, a TV show was created in order to expand upon the popular magazine content. Everyone wanted a piece of this growing icon.
If you got a lot of B’s on the quiz, that means you encompass all the qualities of the magazine Martha Stewart era. You’re hard-working, charismatic, and eager. You’ve got the drive to go far, as long as you have people around you for support. Right now is the time in your life where you might stay up late working on a project, or find yourself networking a lot. There will be mistakes that happen in your life at this time, but you should embrace these instances and view them as opportunities instead of problems.
If you got mostly C’s … you’re Prison Martha Stewart!
In late 2001, Martha Stewart made some bad decisions when it came to the stock market. She was sentenced to go to prison on October 8, 2004, and wasn’t released until March 4, 2005. Her nickname in prison was apparently “M. Diddy.”
If you got mostly C’s, you’re undoubtedly prison Martha Stewart. Don’t let this get you down! This just means you need to do some reflecting. If you’re feeling a little overwhelmed with life, or a little stressed at work, remember to hang back and evaluate what needs to change. Don’t take shortcuts. Go to a couple yoga classes or take up knitting. You’re on your way to greatness, I have no doubt.
If you got mostly D’s … you’re Empire Martha Stewart!
In 1997 Stewart expanded her magazine to include television, merchandising, and more print ventures. Thus, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia was born. In 1999 the company went public and Stewart became the first female self-made billionaire in the United States. After a small stint in prison (see above), Stewart made a huge comeback and expanded her career path to include more TV programs, fun acting stints, and brand partnerships.
If you got mostly D’s, that means you embody all the qualities of the empire Martha Stewart era. You’re a study in balance — you’re aggressive, but calm; you’re smart, but you know when you need to ask more questions; and above all, you’re resilient. This is the time in your life that you need to focus on the big picture instead of your day-to-day tasks. Stop making so many lists. Remember to be kind to the people you work with. Take more vacations — you’ve earned it.
If you got mostly E’s … you’re Cool Martha Stewart!
In the fall of 2013, Martha Stewart was called out for taking really bad photos of food and posting them to social media. While most people made fun of her for this ugly error (PR people, where are you?), it was actually the start of something special: Martha Stewart was reaching peak cool. She doesn’t care what you think of her photos. She also did a great roast of Justin Bieber and even hung out with Snoop Dog. She’s so cool.
If you choose mostly E’s on the quiz, that means you are officially in the era of cool Martha Stewart. You’re relaxed, funny, and smart. You’re super comfortable with yourself and that shows in your all of your interactions with people. Nothing really gets you down, and you’re always game to try something new. You sleep well at night.
