Adapting Midsentence

Adapting Midsentence

The goop Podcast - July 7, 2020 - 46:40

“I like a lot of different topics, and I like to be around a lot of different types of people,” says Arlan Hamilton. “And that keeps me flexible.” Hamilton is the author of It’s About Damn Time and the founder of Backstage Capital, a venture capital seed fund that invests in underrepresented founders. She built the company from the ground up—while experiencing homelessness. In this conversation with host Elise Loehnen, Hamilton shares some incredible lessons from her personal and professional lives. She talks about the nuances of identity, the importance of learning to adapt (sometimes midsentence), and how power, influence, capital, and resources are being restructured—and what the future might look like.
