Arianna Huffington Discusses New Venture ‘Thrive’

Wellness. For a price.

Arianna Huffington’s new venture, wellness company Thrive Global launches Nov. 30, which means it’s time for Huffington to fire up the hype train.

One of Huffington’s first stops on the press tour was CNNMoney. In an interview, Huffington divulged additional details about the company.

“Thrive Global is basically based on the need to change the way we work and live, and make it more sustainable,” Huffington explained. “We see more and more how people are sacrificing their health, their relationships because of a faulty belief that in order to succeed they have to burn out.”

Thrive will offer wellness training to corporations and publish editorial content on a site hosted by Medium. The training courses—designed to help companies increase productivity and reduce health care costs—will be available online or in-person.

Huffington also announced that Callie Schweitzer, most recently with Time Inc., has joined Thrive as managing editor.
