Meg Whitman’s Greatest Achievement, Networks and Your Career

A few years ago a woman who was working for me sent me a long letter asking for an extreme raise—four times what I was currently paying her. Without going into too much detail, the woman was incredibly accomplished and had a background that was absolutely astonishing. For example, she had been a clerk at the United States Supreme Court and I think she might have  stood first in her class at one of the top two or three law schools in the country.

There was, of course, the spectacle of Trump’s inauguration, which was a parade of B-list entertainers and has-beens. Then there are the Cabinet appointees, many of whom would not be counted among the best and brightest even in the event of being sole survivors of a nuclear holocaust (not to give the president ideas). And then there’s our Peter Thiel. Thi...
