    Kathryn Minshew is the founder and CEO of The Muse, a career platform and job discovery tool that's credited with helping over 50 million people find not just work — but inspiring careers — is a breakthrough of sorts. Her smart fashion sense, combined with her amazing ability to speak eloquently about entrepreneurship at schools like Harvard and on TV spots like The Today Show, make Kathryn a woman to pay close attention to.
    I know of two kinds of entrepreneurs: those who ease into the day with Zen-like morning meditation rituals, and those who go from 0 to 100 MPH within a few minutes of waking. As founder and CEO of The Muse for nearly five years, I definitely fall into the latter camp. No matter how much sleep I’ve gotten (or how much I feel like death warmed over after a late night on my laptop), I’m usually up, cranking on emails, and eating a breakfast bar or chia pudding — simultaneously! — within a few minutes of waking up.

    That said, I’m pretty sure my approach is sub-optimal — and I vaguely aspire to be more “Zen-like” in general. So I reached out to 17 badass women in my network to see how they kick off their days. Stuck in your own a.m.-routine rut? Try one of these and have a great day!
