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…
- 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?
- Paying her way through college when her parents were unable to afford it. How she strategized.
- The future of GOOP…Lisa uses the term world domination.
One of my favorite quotes from the interview: “It’s always about hard work, connecting with people, being persuasive & standing up for yourself.” – Click to Tweet
