What makes Arianna Huffington a Global Shaker?

Arianna Huffington is a celebrity author, businesswoman and politician. Born in Greece and brought up in the UK and the USA, Arianna Huffington is best known for the creation of the popular news website, The Huffington Post which has now been acquired by AOL.

On August 11, 2016, she announced that she would step down from her role at The Huffington Post to devote her time to a new startup, Thrive Global, focused on health and wellness information – making her a world guru on personal wellness and a reformer of corporate culture.

Arianna has written a whopping 15 books. Her last two, Thrive: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder and The Sleep Revolution: Transforming Your Life, One Night At A Time, both became instant international bestsellers. A workaholic and serial entrepreneur, she wrote the latter bestseller after becoming a self-proclaimed “sleep evangelist” following a burnout that found her unconscious in her kitchen with a broken cheekbone.

In 2012, Arianna became a LinkedIn Influencer, writing about success and sharing professional insights.
