CEO hires a woman to slap him every time he uses Facebook
New Delhi : An Indian-American CEO of wearable devices company Pavlok had reportedly hired a woman to slap him every time he uses Facebook. The news has left SpaceX CEO Elon Musk impressed.
In 2012, Maneesh Sethi had approached Craigslist in a quest to find a person who would slap him every time he opens his Facebook. His motive was to stay away from social media and increase his productivity. "I hired a girl on Craigslist to slap me in the face every time I used Facebook," he explained in his blog, adding that the results of his experiment were astounding.
According to the Pavlok CEO, he hired a woman named Kara for $8 an hour to slap him every time he strayed off task - and his productivity skyrocketed to 98%.
Recently, a picture of Kara slapping Maneesh Sethi had gone viral on social media and this caught the attention of CEO Elon Musk, who responded to the post with two fire emojis.
Maneesh Sethi also responded to Elon Musk's comment and asked, "Is Elon Musk giving me two emojis the highest I'll ever reach?" he asked in the comments section, wondering if the emoji were meant to signify his "'Icarus flying too close to the sun' moment."
