Arianna Huffington

"How To Succeed? Get More Sleep!"

In a city like Washington, D.C. where one's importance is determined by the number of meetings they have and the hours they work, Arianna Huffington, President and Editor-In-Chief of The Huffington Post Media Group, says "I studied, I met with medical doctors, scientists, and I’m here to tell you that the way to a more productive, more inspired, more joyful life is: getting enough sleep.”  As she relates in the video below, an unfortunate incident a few years ago in her own life brought her to this conclusion.  

 

Arianna Huffington is a jounalist, nationally syndicated columnist, radio and television talk show host, entrepreneur and author of 13 thirteen books.  In 2005, she along with Kenneth Lerer and Jonah Peretti co-founded The Huffington Post as a news and political blog. Today, The Huffington Post has become one of the most respected on-line sources for news ranking only second to the New York Times in number of site visit.  In 2011, Ms. Huffington sold The Huffington Post for a reported $315 million to AOL.Under the terms of the deal, she remained the President and Editor-In-Chief. 

 

She is a graduate of Cambridge University and the mother of two daughters.

Sibling Revelry

The author's sister Stephanie Cole Hill is one of the few African-American leaders in her industry.

I will never forget when my mother brought Stephanie home from the hospital and took her into the nursery. Immediately I was there, and I announced -- making myself as tall and imposing as I could -- that I was going to be moving into the room with her because she was "mine." I claimed Stephanie as my own on that day. And from that day to this, I have never let go.


What's amazing to me is that "my baby" has grown into one of the most accomplished business leaders among African-American women in the field of science and technology. Having worked more than 25 years at defense leader Lockheed Martin, Stephanie was recently named president of one of the company's key businesses:...
