“Success is not easy and is certainly not for the lazy.” – Samantha Saifer-Berngard


Whether it be school, work, or life in general, we all dream of being successful. Though success means different things for different people, success for each person is a reflection of what they want to achieve by being the very best version of themselves.

Similar to many accomplished men and women, 29-year-old stylist Samantha Saifer-Berngard of SKOOG Productions knows that success is not easily acquired. In a recent interview with The Everygirl, Saifer-Berngard shares a few pieces of advice.


First she says, “Work should be fun! We graduate college and work such long hours that we essentially spend more time on this earth working than doing anything else. Make sure you are happy and love what you do! Life is too short not to.”





Saifer-Berngard also shares her three commandments for professional fulfillment:


1. Set your goals high, even if they seem impossible to reach.


2. You learn the most from your biggest failures—try everything!


3. Never lose sight of what you want. If you want something bad enough, you will find a way to get it!

“Not everyone has to be a model and a designer, there are so many other options that are great and long-lasting. It’s just finding what you’re good at and being honest with yourself.” –Rachel Roy 




“Whenever I feel bad, I use that feeling to motivate me to work harder. I only allow myself one day to feel sorry for myself. People who complain really get on my nerves. When I’m not feeling my best I ask myself, ‘What are you gonna do about it?’ I use the negativity to fuel the transformation into a better me.”- Beyoncé


“All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.” – Walt Disney
