One thing I learned quickly about traveling for work as a consultant is not to pack more than you need, and get a set of clothes that’s nice looking, flattering, and functional, and move on. I’m 5’10, so I never really wore high heels. I didn’t know at 26 that I’d one day want to get into politics [Ed. note: Whitman ran for governor of California in 2010], but after the campaign I decided I’d never wear heels again! As for a beauty routine, keep it simple; don’t overcomplicate. Make it easy so that your morning routine is quick and effective. On top of that, make sure you exercise and sleep. I was a competitive swimmer in high school, and I went back to swimming after the governor’s race. I wished I’d gone back to swimming when I was 26.
