Profiled: Whitney Port's 5 Top Tips for Career Success

For many of us, Whitney Port's name is synonymous with reality shows The Hills and The City—but, in fact, the once-reality star has continued to build her career long after the shows came to an end. She has her own clothing line, called Whitney Eve, which has seen tremendous success since it launched in 2009. She's written a book, judged a season of Britain's iteration of Top Model, and now she's officially being recognised as a social media entrepreneur.

Port is a panelist at the Create + Cultivate convention, a meeting of some of the biggest and brightest minds in the digital space, which will take place in Los Angeles on March 21. Other speakers include blogger Aimee Song, Into the Gloss founder and CEO Emily Weiss, and others, all of whom will discuss the role of social media, blogs, and other digital platforms in building careers.

We got the chance to sit down and chat with Port about her career and got her very practical advice for getting ahead. Keep scrolling for Whitney Port's top five tips for career success!
