PayPal Shares Thoughts about the Future
PayPal leaders always grab my attention with their zero to sixty delivery of innovation. Sharing many styles, their authenticity is palpable, as they openly share forward thinking insights.

This alone sent me on a mental journey, thinking how -just this one action will affect everything else. Learning to bring people through change is challenging to do. You should expect failure to be a part of the whole process.
