Habits: Stacey Tank, SVP and chief corporate relations officer, Heineken

Take the hardest job you can get your hands on.

Morning ritual
Up at 5am. First order of business is a double shot with milk via the Nespresso machine, then to the treadmill with a multitude of newspapers, magazines, and my iPhone toggling between MSNBC, CNBC, and CNN. What follows is a preschooler and pug juggling session until I jump in the car with a kombucha in hand to brave Interstate 95 South.

Required reading
My Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook feeds followed by The Huffington Post, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, the Financial Times, and People.com. 

Favorite magazines include Fast Company, Wired, The Economist, Bloomberg Businessweek, Monocle, Vanity
, the many alcohol beverage trade publications, and, of course, PRWeek.
