Habits of Powerful Women

June 5, 2017

It can be stated with outmost definitiveness that highly successful people do a lot of things that differ them from others. What are those things? We have talked with successful women to find out what they do that makes them stand out from others.

Before we start looking at their habits, it should be noticed that most of the Americans want the best results here and now. But if you want to change and be successful, it will take you some more time. All of us – both successful people and less successful ones need to go through a quiet hustle and a daily grind, which is often left behind the curtain. But it is your ability to make the most use of every second that you have that makes you successful. Even with what seems to be the most ordinary moment, one has to consider it the most precious gift ever given to him/her.

Now let’s look at the habits of successful women.

Tackling mornings

Founder of a boutique PR firm “Six One Agency”, Kilee Hughes, 41: 

Every day I wake up sometime between 6:30 and 7 a.m. go to the kitchen and turn on the kettle. When it’s ready, it makes a loud whistle, which signalizes that I have to get going. Sometimes, I can light a candle, turn on my favorite music, and meditate at dawn. I use the app “Calm” for my guided mediations. These minutes of mindfulness are very precious, because they give me peace and clarity for the whole day.” 

Commercial lead counsel at Facebook, Bari A. Williams, 36: 

“I wake up at 5:30 a.m. The first thing I do is checking e-mails and responding to messages. When I’m done with that, I take a shower and prepare my kids for school. At 6:40 a.m. I’m already in the shuttle, which takes me to work. At 7:30 I’m in the office. Such an early start gives me the opportunity to finish drafts, clear my in-box, and start early conference calls. When everyone just starts getting to work at 9:30 a.m., I’ve already done a lot of things.”

Handling Stress.

Founder of a beauty e-commerce site –, Jodie Patterson, 45: 

“I use washing my face as a reset button, as a transitional process if you want. In the morning, before I wake my children, I apply some oil to my face. When I get back home, I perform an in-depth wash. Later, when the lunchtime comes closer, in case I need to have a break, I wash my face again.”

Founder of a beauty blog, Jacky Williams, 37:

“Bubble baths and wine are two things that relieve me from stress. I love a combination of some Zinfandel or Pinot Noir with a delicious dinner. After that I take an odoriferous lavender-scented bath. That gives me some real relaxation, which I can use to come with unique solutions to my problems. It’s my personal space which no one has the right to touch.”
