Seraphine Founder Cecile Reinaud shares her experience of meeting Arianna Huffington, the media mogul behind The Huffington Post, and the lessons learnt from this fascinating role model.
As a mother and entrepreneur I am always on the lookout for strong female role models who inspire me to strive and juggle motherhood with my career goals. This week I have had the privilege to meet one of America’s most influential personalities, the founder of The Huffington Post, Arianna Huffington. She came to present her new book at the business forum Business O Feminin and I want to share with you her inspiring life journey and the advice she offers on how to succeed and achieve a sustainable work life balance; the subject of her new book.
Watch Arianna talk about her wake up call moment
In her book “Thrive; The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Happier Life”, Arianna talks through her own struggles to have it all and balance family life with work. She reflects on the manic way she lived her life in the past, and challenges of raising her two daughters. She denounces our culture of over-work, which often leaves us no time to nurture our bodies and minds. She also urges us to disconnect from our screens and the incessant flow of information and social media news! Arianna’s book is full of fascinating research and inspiring philosophical quotes that draw on ancient wisdom, and in the end it recommends four essential qualities for a happier life: wellbeing, a capacity to wonder, wisdom and giving.
Meeting Arianna was incredibly inspiring, and the passion and positive energy she exudes is simply mesmerising. I can’t recommend reading her book highly enough! As mothers, the challenge of juggling all our objectives and being a good and loving parent is a daily labour of love. With Arianna’s advice, you’ll find a great road map to feeling more serene and content with your life.
