6 Things Successful Women Do Every Day By Lauren Conrad



Lauren Conrad is a Career Girl by heart. Years after the successful series ‘The Hills’ ended, Conrad can call herself a writer, fashion designer, actress, model, reality star and entrepreneur. She is a role model for girls all over the world and with her awesome answer to the question What is your favourite position,’ where she answered ‘CEO’, she also showed her sassy and fun side.

Conrad believes in women empowerment and so do we! She gave weekly career advice, taken from her own experience, to motivate, encourage and empower other Career Girls around the world.

Today CGD gives you 6 of our favorite things that successful women do every single day.

#1 – Watch the clock

In other words: be on time! No matter what the occasion is, always be on time. Dinner with friends, an important meeting or lunch with your grandma, being on time shows punctuality and respect to the other person. At the same time it is a good mindset to have and create for other areas in your life.

#2 -Be Kind

Always be kind! You don’t have to be a ‘bitch’ in order to be successful or to rise to the top. Be nice to everyone you meet and support others in their career and personal life as well.

#3 – Make friends

Always make time for friends and try to make new ones. Successful women don’t have to be stuck to their desk 24/7. Talking with other people during work hours can help you to get your motivation back or get inspiration for your work. Socializing with colleagues during and after work will help you to establish important connections.

#4 – Treat your body right

Taking care of your body is a must when you want to be productive. Your mind doesn’t function properly when you don’t. So eat well, have enough sleep and exercise on a daily basis.

#5 – Tidy and clean

Clean house, clean mind! This is ‘oh-so’ true. Having a clean and tidy surrounding will clear your mind and help you to concentrate better on the important things.

#6 – Keep learning

Always keep learning and developing new skills. Successful women are always busy with improving themselves and learning new things. Always make sure you keep developing and progressing yourself to stay on top of all that is going on in your industry.

    I love Lauren Conrad! Her blog is so lovely to read and her positive, driven personality is what totally inspires me! I really like the tops you have written, and think the ‘don’t be a bitch’ thing is so true! I don’t understand why people can be so stuck up – like we are in awe of your success but do you need to be so rotten about it?
    Anyway, I love the tips! Hope you have a lovely day! :)

    I really like this kind of articles! I always read Lauren Conrad’s blog and i think she is such an amazing, kind and inspiring person! And i totally agree with all the 6 tips, especially with “be kind”. I think you doesn’t have to be bitch to get at the top and there is of course an example: Lauren Conrad. She’s really kind and at the top!

  • Lauren

    I definitely agree with being kind – there’s always a nice way to say things and get tasks done without freaking out at someone else

    If someone would’ve told me how far LC would come after The Hills I wouldn’t have believed you back then. But after watching the show & seeing her genuine & sweet nature, it totally makes sense. I glad to see successful people that don’t feel the need to be mean to do so. Totally love LC.

    Great post! The ‘be kind’ is so true. I don’t understand why some people have to be bitchy about others. It’s never the right approach!

    I definitely feel like checking out Lauren Conrads blog now! :-) did anyone read her book? Would you recommend it?

    I am a man, but I will follow those rules to enhance my success, the fact that I find the article very interesting.

  • Claire

    Thank you so much for sharing this! I absolutely love the advice, it’s so realistic and easily achieved! The simple things always matter in my book.
    I’m in the early entrepreneurial stages of my career and so any tips on success are always appreciated! I also love LC! I’m not a typical girly girl and I didn’t really watch The Hills and so thought she was just another actress before I watched a documentary on her on E! She is a fantastic inspiration and role model to all girls and has recently become my own.

    I definitely struggle with 3. It can be hard stepping away from your work at times.


    As a 77 year-old lady,who reached the top of my vocation as a Head Teacher,I approve of all these key points and relate to all of them,except ,regretfully,not exercising enough.But above all I think that I would emphasise the importance of being reliable,easy to work with,a hard and conscientious worker,taking every opportunity to develop relevant knowledge,skills and experience. This will enable you to do a first rate job.You don’t need to be aggressively ambitious or always put money first. If you get the other things right,success will often come to you, without you seeking it. I often took on extra work or areas of responsibility without technically getting promoted or getting more money. After 6 months or so,having demonstrated how well I performed, money and promotion were given to me without even needing to ask.But the chief benefit was in widening my experience,so that by the time I became Head ,I had covered every key are of responsibility in a school,eg as specialist teacher in 3 subjects,plus some subsidiaries (having along the way,gained the equivalent of 4 degrees),as Tutor,Year Head,Head of House,Careers Specialist,Head of Sixth Form and Deputy Head.I had also attended courses on all new trends and educational issues. Inevitably I had a very impressive CV. by the end.Without planning it,but by just working at enjoying my job and doing it as well as I could,I was successful.I have to stress that good judgment is a key quality which you may or may not have initially, when you are young, but lots of experience and a reflective analytical approach to what you see around you, working or not working ,will gradually develop your ability to make good decisions.The other important quality is self-confidence. I was quite lacking in that until my mid- 30s, when I finally began to see what strengths I had.You do need to work at it,by both focusing on and reminding yourself of the things you are good at and consciously trying to improve your areas of weakness. Good luck to all you youngsters,male or female!

    Love this! I do love a tidy and clean place, and people tell me I’m a very kind person to be around with :) In regards to, keep learning, I believe in this! Everyday we learn something new or if I’m given the opportunity to complete a task or job, I believe asking questions and the “doing” helps a lot in terms of learning what you want and need to know.

    Really good tips! ;)
