Arianna Huffington calls The Huffington Post her first partnership and describes herself as "a bit of a loner." She met her fellow co-founder, Ken Lerer, two years before the launch of the news site and found a like-minded partner she could work with. "It was really amazing how little it mattered that we're not in the same physical space," Huffington tells Business Insider CEO Henry Blodget. Despite the physical distance between Huffington and Lerer, the two still make key decisions together and focus on their assigned roles in running the company.
