The Newsette was created to provide you with intimate access to inspiring, rule-breaking and game-changing women from across the globe. From Payal Kadakia of ClassPass to media mogul Arianna Huffington to Rachel Drori of Daily Harvest, we’ve been lucky enough to sit down with so many women who are changing the business landscape and leading the way for other women to do the same. In honor of International Women’s Day, we rounded up some of their best advice and insight — all pulled from our features like Morning Routine, Nightly Routine, She Made the First Move, and more. Read on for some major inspo!

“The first part of my transition to sleep is escorting my phone out of the bedroom. Our phones are repositories of everything we need to put away in order to sleep – our to-do lists, our inboxes, the demands of the world. They’re definitely not sleep aids!” – Arianna Huffington, Founder of HuffPost and Thrive Global

“Well, I think being anything less than authentic feels like a waste of energy. I have a pretty good grasp on who I am and I try not to get caught up in how I’m perceived by others or what people think of me.. it’s a trap!”Chrissy Rutherford, Senior Fashion Editor at Harper’s Bazaar

“Honestly, my best advice is to just get started. Successful people don’t let a few failures derail them. The best way to learn is to do! So much of success involves persistence and the reframing of failure as opportunities to learn, improve and ultimately prevail.” Payal Kadakia, Founder of ClassPass

“We all need a purpose, which is essentially a personal mission. If we’re not on a path towards achieving that purpose, it’s time to pivot.” Payal Kadakia

“In times when I’ve felt guilty about how much my work takes me away from my daughter, I think about how much of a role model my mother was to me, and I hope that my daughter feels that way as well” Vicky Tsai, Founder of Tatcha

“Good ideas and the ability to be a good collaborator doesn’t only come from age and experience but from being innovative, a team player, reliable and dedicated to the company you work for.” Stephanie Mark, Co-founder of Coveteur

“To any women looking to make a career change when the results are uncertain, I suggest figuring out a game plan that will make that change feasible when it comes to both time and finances. It might take a lot of hard work and energy, but if you focus on your goals, any sacrifices you make will feel worth it.” Lyndsey Scott, Model and app developer

“I made it a priority to build strong relationships with other incredible women in my industry, who have all helped me, in one way or another, to get to where I am today. Don’t underestimate the power of a good recommendation—the kind that only comes from fostering genuine connections and friendships. Networking of the self-serving kind won’t get you far.” –Olivia Fleming, Senior Features Editor at Harper’s Bazaar

“Don’t try and fit a square peg into a round hole. When you stop trying to force an idea, or stop trying to control something that’s out of your control and instead look at the problem in a new way—that’s when the magic happens.” –Olivia Fleming

“As a creative who does it all, it’s so important to be knowledgeable about the backend of the business, stay connected, and keep improving.” –Natalie Lim Suarez, Influencer behind Natalie Off Duty

“There will always be a reason not to but if you believe in your vision all the sacrifice and trade-offs are worth it!” Rachel Drori, Founder of Daily Harvest

“Oftentimes the desire for perfection can delay taking action.” Brittany Xavier, Influencer behind Thrifts and Threads

“You need to follow, engage, and communicate and that’s my number one priority when I wake up every day: communicate with my audience.” –Lauryn Evarts, Influencer behind The Skinny Confidential

“Jump in and find people you want to follow and learn from, engage in conversation, ask questions.” –Leslie Berland, Chief Marketing Officer and Head of People at Twitter
