On Being Fearless
Arianna Huffington is cofounder and editor in chief of The Huffington Post, a nationally syndicated columnist, and author of 12 books. The co-host of Left, Right & Center, public radio’s popular political roundtable program, is also on Time magazine’s list of the world’s 100 most influential people. Originally from Greece, Huffington moved to England at age 16 and was graduated from Cambridge University with a master’s degree in economics. A successful entrepreneur who has triumphed over naysayers, self-doubt, and a turbulent economy, Huffington demonstrates how to turn difficult times into opportunity for growth — both personally and professionally. Becoming fearless — daring to think new thoughts, take big risks, embrace failure, and start again — will ultimately lead both people and businesses through the toughest times. Her book On Becoming Fearless… in Love, Work, and Life is Huffington’s most personal book to date, offering a roadmap for achieving fearlessness in every aspect of life, a manifesto on how to be bold, say what needs to be said, and do what needs to be done to find the freedom to love, lead, and succeed. A trustee for the Archer School for Girls (California), Huffington lives in Los Angeles with her two teenage daughters.
