Arianna Huffington Leaves Huffington Post
Arianna Huffington is closing her laptop on The Huffington Post, a website she co-founded a decade ago. The decision comes from Huffington’s newest venture, Thrive Global, a health and wellness company. Huffington has realized that Thrive will be taking up most of her time and won’t be able to juggle both. Huffington thought she would be able to manage both but said in a statement she had “become more and more passionate – okay, obsessed – with burnout and stress and how we can reduce their impact on our lives”. In fact, Huffington has made millions off a book that basically tells us to sleep more. Timing is good for her to leave as Verizon just purchased Yahoo and Verizon also owns The Huffington Post so there was bound to be a shift in power with the shake-up. Good luck Arianna!
