"A microcosm emblematic of a larger sea of change to come"
Paltrow’s already rolling deep with 14,740 LinkedIn followers, which continue to tick upward as of Wednesday afternoon. She recently said she’s parting ways with her service-minded lifestyle company, GOOP, telling The Guardian “my dream is that one day no one will remember that I had anything to do with it.”
But it is here, in her online portfolio, that she presents the driving force that powers the miracle of miracles, GOOP, this way.
“The thread line is that we are all multi-faceted, complicated, and busy b*&tches who can care about family and work simultaneously.”
The account recaps but is in no way limited to how Paltrow is the spark illuminating a beacon of light that shines on people who are in the dark about the information they need.
“Through goop, and her own lifestyle choices, Paltrow has pushed many conversations—primarily around health, wellness, and mindfulness—into the mainstream, shining the light on our basic right to have clean and healthy food, properly regulated personal care products, and access to information so we can make our own choices for our families.”
Though her page notes that the site is but a mini symbol of the progress our nation truly needs.
“While the goop team is just a microcosm, it’s emblematic of a larger sea change that needs to happen for families in the U.S.”
The summary section of her pro experience only covers GOOP (the microcosm of upcoming oceanic-sized change.) But over in Hollywood, she’s also an accomplished actor. Lest you forget, her online C.V. notes that she won the Oscar for her role in Shakespeare in Love, and starred in movies like The Royal Tenenbaums and The Talented Mr. Ripley.
For a more complete picture of her many accolades, see this formidable list. But the best stuff is about GOOP. This is the life, the life well-lived so far of Gwyneth Paltrow, according to her LinkedIn page. Shine on Paltrow.
