So Money - Episode 346

Lisa Gersh

CEO of Goop

Lisa Gersh is the CEO of GOOP, a lifestyle website that features fashion, travel, food, all actionable content curated by a team led by Gwyneth Paltrow, the founder.

Prior to arriving at GOOP over a year ago, Lisa served as President and CEO of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia. She also co-founded Oxygen Media, serving as both the president and COO.  She and her team ultimately sold Oxygen to NBC for about a billion dollars.

With Lisa I learned…

  1. The right way for someone to ask HER for a raise. She’s been leading companies for years. She’s been in charge of hiring and promotions. From her perspective, what’s a smart way to ask for more money on the job?
  2. Paying her way through college when her parents were unable to afford it. How she strategized.
  3. The future of GOOP…Lisa uses the term world domination.
