On Monday, Mary Hannah and I had the amazing experience of meeting Maynard Webb, former COO of eBay and current Yahoo! and Salesforce.com board member, through the ASU Edson program. After attending his guest lecture, we met with Mr. Webb for a small group discussion with other Edson companies to share our experiences in starting companies, and to ask for guidance on how to surmount challenges we face. Reflecting on his own experiences, he offered valuable advice addressing the issues and frustrations we face in our businesses and individual career paths. It was an experience we will never forget!
We highly recommend his new book, Rebooting Work. The theme of his book that resonated the most with us was that anyone can become “CEOs of their own destinies” and have a successful career. Mr. Webb offers practical, actionable solutions for anyone who feels unsatisfied in their current job to help them start the career they have always wanted. You can listen to Mr. Webb discussing his book in this Tech Crunch interview.
