LinkedIn's billionaire co-founder still works 7 days a week
LinkedIn executive chairman and co-founder Reid Hoffman is one of the most successful people in tech.
In addition to his role at LinkedIn, he's a partner with GreylockVentures, sits on countless boards (including Mozilla), and is an active angel investor in dozens more companies. A few of his most famous investments include Airbnb, Coupons.com, Facebook, Zynga.
And he volunteers on the boards of Kiva.org, MIT Media Lab, and supports a bunch of charitable causes.
Today he took the stage with his best friend Aneel Bhusri, the CEO of Workday, at the Fortune Brainstorm Tech conference being held this week in Aspen.
When Fortune editor Adam Lashinsky told Hoffman he'd like to how he manages it all, here what he had to say:
- He spends Mondays at Greylock.
- He spends Tuesday through Friday at LinkedIn.
- On the weekends, he "spends time on whatever fire burning brightest," he says, and or, he spends time working on "something strategic" maybe doing more digging on an angel investment he's contemplating or "on some project I want to move forward."
In other words, he works seven days a week. That's why on his own LinkedIn profile under "Advice for Contacting Reid" he says, "Unfortunately, I'm extremely busy."
