TOPIC: Builders & Innovators 2019

In this episode, filmed at Goldman Sachs’ Builders + Innovators Summit, Gwyneth Paltrow discusses her journey from actor to entrepreneur, lessons she has learned from building her business, and her views on the future of the wellness industry.  

On transitioning from actor to entrepreneur: “To be an entrepreneur and have control over your own destiny is obviously a great thing, but, for me, what I love most about it is I love working with amazing, brilliant, mostly, women, and I love innovating. I love pushing boundaries and trying to do something new. It’s very exhilarating.” 

On the future of wellness: “I think it’s really for me just about maintaining the connection between my instinct and executing on it in a smart way, obviously. And, obviously, along the way, we’ve made mistakes.… But I like being brave, and I like getting in trouble. I mean, it’s important. I think somebody has to do it, and I think at goop, we really believe in trying to move the needle and trying to push culture forward as it pertains to, you know, people having autonomy over the way they feel.”
