A perfect model of a Leo is Jennifer Lopez who knew early in her life where she wanted to be……the center of the stage. J-Lo as she is fondly called; started as a back-up dancer in a TV variety show, “In Living Color” and doggedly worked her way to being one of the most successful solo artists of this generation.
