Episode Description

Scott was the CEO of GoDaddy during some of its most transformative times. GoDaddy has been a staple for small businesses looking to get their brands online. But as knowledgeable as Scott is on web hosting and online platform services, he might have even more to say on the NFL players that have been drafted out of the Ivy League. As a former free safety for Yale University, Scott’s lessons from the gridiron helped him prepare for the very top of the corporate ladder, where every word uttered and decision made had company wide effects. It was very humbling being able to pick Scott's brain, as his success's off the field are a win for athletes all around.
