Arianna Huffington on the Purpose of Life and Who Inspires Her

Arianna Huffington Interview

I had the amazing opportunity to be in New York City for the Women: Inspiration and Enterprise Symposium in which I was recognized as one of America’s Next Inspirations, a recognition given to young women showing exceptional leadership.

While I was there I had the incredible privilege to meet and interview Arianna Huffington from the Huffington Post, a woman I really admire. I can’t say enough about how intelligent, gracious, and engaging she is. It was kind of like meeting a super hero! I hope you enjoy the interview!

  1. Wow Natalie, how did you score the interview? I love Arianna. She is so smart and direct with every message she speaks on. I also got a chance to see her on Bill Mahar.

    I have a new book: First Generation White Collar. I believe in teaching college grads how to fish. Arianna Huffington’ book “Third World America” is a great read also!

  2. On the contrary to your introduction, the quality of this interview is fantastic! It’s what Arianna says that makes the quality. This was a fantastic interview, she is inspiring and motivating to continue to grow as women writers, business owners, scholars and bloggers! How amazing to hear her say the women of our generation are who inspire her!

    Truly excellent interview and how incredible to have Arianna Huffington of THE HUFFINGTON POST interviewed on She Takes On The World!

  3. Natalie,

    Congrats on both your honor, and conducting such a fantastic interview! I, too, had a chance to meet and talk with Arianna at a client event last April, and wrote about it here:

    It’s so refreshing to meet women like her, who don’t disappoint, but rather impress. I agree with you, class act. And we need more like her!

  4. First – HUGE kudos Natalie on your very well deserved recognition!!

    Second – Just loved the point Arianna made about how important it is to move from intention to action & how your life takes on a whole different dynamic when your work moves beyond “your career” and into the broader realm of really making a difference. Also loved her continued urging for us workaholics to Get. Some. Sleep. & chill out a bit :). She’s so amazing, thanks for sharing this great interview with us.

  5. Thanks for the comments! It was really nice to discuss the next generation of women with Arianna because she has a lot of faith in the next generation to do things differently and achieve even greater success.
