CEO Hires Woman To Slap Him Every Time He’s On Facebook

He does not want to waste time on social media so he came with this strange strategy which involves getting slapped anytime he visits facebbok.

Maneesh Sethi, the Indian-American founder and CEO of wearable device company Pavlok, once hired a woman off Craigslist to slap him every time he opened Facebook in a move that has left Elon Musk impressed.

In 2012, Mr Sethi realised he wanted to increase his productivity, so he went to Craigslist looking for a person who would be willing to slap him every time he opened Facebook while he was supposed to be working. “I hired a girl on Craigslist to slap me in the face everytime 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%.

A photo of Mr Sethi being slapped by Kara for opening Facebook recently resurfaced on Twitter and caught the eye of Elon Musk.

The CEO of Tesla and SpaceX responded to the picture with two fire emoji. The emoji is used to signify something cool or awe-inspiring.
