You Gotta Love What You Do

When I hear people say, ‘Oh it’s because I’m a woman’, I say, ‘Do me a favor. Stop your crying, go home and come back when you are ready to work.

That’s CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo in full on Brooklyn talking with The National, a newspaper out of the UAE. The piece profiles Bartiromo’s rise from coat-check girl in Bay Ridge, to mover of markets. Here’s what else we learned:

• She works so hard that she has to schedule specific days to “stay home and rest” into her BlackBerry, often weeks in advance.

• She stays sane by exercise sessions and using holiday time for spas.

• She absolutely loves what she does.

“Don’t go into a career because you think you are going to make a lot of money at it. Go into a career because you love what you do. That’s most important.”
