“I invented ‘it’s a good thing’ before you were even born!” says Martha Stewart
Martha Stewart, of her long career and a media empire that young TV chefs may try to compete with, but never quite topple.
The secret to her success? A near-insane work ethic, for one. “I find that when you have a real interest in life and a curious life, that sleep is not the most important thing.” But she does sleep. Sort of. “I catnap now and then, but I think while I nap, so it’s not a waste of time.”
As for attaining work life balance: “I have a microphone on one ankle and an ankle bracelet on the other, so I’m well balanced today.”
But seriously, for Martha, it’s al labout high standards. “I think it’s very important that whatever you’re trying to make or sell, or teach has to be basically good. A bad product and you know what? You won’t be here in ten years.”
