Kate Hudson is an actress, a founder, a WW spokesperson and a mom of three. But thanks to her mother, Goldie Hawn, Hudson knows how to put her success in perspective.

The 39-year-old, whose calm, cool and collected demeanor is like a waft of lavender oil, chatted with PureWow exclusively about her new partnership with WW and how it ties back to something her mom instilled in her from a young age.

Talking about the elusiveness of balance, Hudson mused, “It’s like my mom always said: ‘It’s not what you’re going to do, it’s who you’re going to be.’” (We couldn’t agree more.)

Today this paradigm drives Hudson’s work and personal life. It’s allowed her to choose career opportunities that are aligned with her values and to set boundaries so she can balance other aspects of her life (like parenting 3-month-old Rani).

“It all has to have real meaning and impact for me,” she explained.

Looks like sometimes Mom does know best, huh?
