Gwyneth Paltrow shot to fame after starring in the 1998 movie "Shakespeare in Love." She's now a three-time author and entrepreneur running her newsletter and e-commerce business, Goop.
And while she says she still has a creative, rebellious spirit, the Academy Award-winning actress has turned into something of a data nerd.
"I have always slightly been wrestling with this punk rock asshole kid inside me who wants to buck tradition," Paltrow writes in a LinkedIn blog post. "The punk rock kid in me is essential to my decision making, but she needs to be tamed and she definitely needs to think before she speaks."
Today, Paltrow sees success as having a healthy gross margin, a percentage that shows how much money you make on items sold.
"I always look at gross margins because that is sort of the big number," she says in a video interview on LinkedIn. "And our number is very good because of skin care and everything."
