A founding board member of PayPal, he is now a board member at Microsoft as well as other companies and nonprofits. He's the host of WaitWhat's award-winning podcast Masters of Scale podcast and the bestselling author of The Startup of You, The Alliance, and Blitzscaling. June Cohen and Deron Triff are the executive producers of the podcast Masters of Scale and co-founders of WaitWhat, the media company behind the hit podcasts Masters of Scale, Meditative Story, and Spark & Fire.

Masters Of Scale is about more than scaling. At its core,
it's a book about how wildly successful people have noticed what
others haven't, what they did with those ideas and what they
learned along the way despite various setbacks. It's also about
how curiosity, perseverance, humility and risk have helped turn
seemingly impossible ideas into lucrative businesses. *
