NEW YORK (AP) — Former Groupon CEO Andrew Mason is diving into several new ventures, including indulging his inner rock star with an album of "motivational business music."
Mason said Friday on his blog that he recently spent a week in Los Angeles and recorded a collection of seven songs called "Hardly Workin.'" Mason said he wants to present business wisdom to younger people and that the songs will help them understand ideas that are critical to becoming productive and effective employees. He said many of Groupon's employees are young and many didn't have much familiarity with business, and didn't want to read books on the subject.
Mason did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Technology media site TechCrunch said it had confirmed with Mason that he was serious about the album.
