I am still on a high from meeting a true pioneer and leader in her field, Arianna Huffington, founder of The Huffington Post. This woman is the real deal. When you talk to her, you can FEEL her energy. She gives you direct eye contact (which I love), a firm handshake, and lets you know she HEARS you. Arianna is open, and oozes creativity… it is palpable.
If you are not familiar with Arianna Huffington, she is the creator and founder of the popular blog The Huffington Post, which she sold to AOL in 2011 for $315 million. She was then named president and Editor-In-Chief of The Huffington Post Media Group, which included The Huffington Post and then-existing AOL properties such as Engadget, AOL Music, Patch Media, and StyleList. Arianna Huffington was named #12 on the Forbes list of the ‘Most Influential Women In Media.’ (Wikipedia)
