Killer Career Advice from 16 Beyond-Inspiring Women As we start the new year many of us are thinking about our careers and goals. In honor of that, One Kings Lane asked 16 successful women, including HGTV’s Emily Henderson and handbag designer Clare Vivier, for their best piece of career advice and it’s makes for a worthwhile read (here).

Three of my favorite pieces of advice:

“Don’t look around; just keep looking ahead. By that I mean it’s easy to get caught up with what everyone is doing around you. When I was thinking of starting my bag company, I’d think, ‘Well, so-and-so already has a bag company. And they do it better. And they do this and do that.’ But you can’t think that way. Just focus on what you’re doing, look forward, and keep putting one foot in front of the other.”—Clare Vivier, fashion designer

“I have so much advice to give—I’ve made so many mistakes over the years! Work with people you truly like—not just those you think are good or don’t mind being around—and you’ll be so much more invested and excited. Also, don’t ever burn a bridge—if you’re over a job, just get out before you slack off and ruin their memory of all the good work you did in the past. And finally: QuickBooks! I used to find the numbers intimidating, but I finally understand what I’m making and losing.”—Emily Henderson, interior designer and host of HGTV’s Secrets of a Stylist

“Know your worth, and go for it! I’ve worked with so many women who doubt themselves and don’t push for the raise, recognition, or promotion because they don’t realize just how valuable they are.”—Yael Aflalo, founder, Reformation
