8. Arianna Huffington, Founder Huffington Post

“Success is commonly defined as money and power, but increasingly that’s not enough. It’s almost like a two-legged stool, where you fall over if that’s all you measure your life by.”

7. Yang Lan, Cofounder Sun Media

“In 1994, after four years of talking about travel on my first show, I realized I knew so little about the world – I knew so little about myself. I decided to quit my job and pursue a postgraduate degree in New York.”

6. Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw, Founder Biocon

“Entrepreneurs are not quitters. Those who quit cannot be entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurship is all about handling and facing failures. I always tell people that failures are temporary but giving up is permanent.”

5. J.K. Rowling, Founder of Harry Potter

“It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default.”

4. Sofia Vergara, Cofounder Latin WE

“I’m not afraid to look silly or dumb or ugly. That’s the way to do comedy. You cannot be thinking about whether your hair is perfect. If you can let go of your insecurities, you can be funny.”

3. Oprah Winfrey, Founder and CEO OWN

“I know for sure that whenever your gut is out of kilter, trouble awaits. Your gut is your inner compass. Whenever you have to consult with other people for an answer, you’re headed in the wrong direction.”

2. Cher Wang, Cofounder HTC

“As entrepreneurs, we must continue to ask ourselves ‘What’s next?’ It takes humility to realize that we don’t know everything, not to rest on our laurels and know that we must keep learning and observing.”

1. Diane Von Furstenberg, Founder DVF

“I don’t like to talk about my dreams. I like to make them happen. I prefer to talk about them when they’re done.”
