Replay Episode: Arianna Huffington on Why It's Okay To Suck in Life For a While

Hey Pluckies! If I had to pick one of my favorite episodes ever on this show, I'd have to go with this one! That's right, amognst the 100+ episodes on Plucking Up, my conversation with the amazing Arianna Huffington tops the list. If you’re not familiar with Arianna Huffington’s highlight reel, here’s a rundown: She is the founder and CEO of Thrive Global and the founder of The Huffington Post. Arianna is the author of 15 books and has been named to Time Magazine’s list of the World’s 100 Most Influential People and Forbes Most Powerful Women List. Thrive Global, her company, is a leading behavior change tech company that aims to change the way we work and live — by ending how we see burnout as this price we pay for success. But, we do things differently here at Plucking Up. Instead of going through her insane achievements, Arianna so honestly shares how she sucked in life for a while, and why that’s okay! In this episode, we talk about Arianna’s accent, a motto she lives by, and why everything in life shouldn’t be a ‘make or break.’ I’m telling you I made all kinds of assumptions before meeting Arianna and she just surprised me in the most amazing way. Do not miss my favorite conversation on this podcast, EVER.
