Arianna Huffington Is Stepping Down As HuffPost CEOAugust 11, 2016
I thought HuffPost would be my last act. But I’ve decided to step down as HuffPost’s editor-in-chief to run my new venture, Thrive Global.— Arianna Huffington (@ariannahuff) August 11, 2016
Arianna Huffington launched the Huffington Post in May of 2005. After a decade, it seems she's ready to move on to other things.
Building something from scratch doesn’t get easier just because you’ve done it before. There is only 1 way to do it: w/ your full attention.— Arianna Huffington (@ariannahuff) August 11, 2016
Thrive Global will focus on increasing productivity and decreasing burnout of workers through seminars, coaching and other methods. This seems to be a real passion of Huffington. In April she released a book called The Sleep Revolution focused on the importance of sleep. Apparently she's becoming a sleep/wellness guru.
