Five Business Tips from Yahoo CEO

Yahoo CEO’s Codes to Live By

photo Five Business Tips from Yahoo CEOMarissa Mayer has been the Yahoo CEO for over two years. She has the technical expertise to understand the computer science behind the Yahoo environment, although, she was the first female engineer employee at Google.

As the Yahoo CEO, Mayer has been responsible for bringing on social startup Tumblr and will champion the merger with one of China’s biggest e-commerce providers, Alibaba.

Mayer has access to tons of insight and lessons as the Yahoo CEO, which most people will never experience.

Here are five quotes from the executive that will have you thinking about your big vision of leadership and business.

1.     I always did something I was a little not ready to do. I think that’s how you grow. When there’s that moment of ‘Wow, I’m not really sure I can do this,’ and you push through those moments, that’s when you have a breakthrough.

Most successful and highly influential entrepreneurs believe that thinking big and pushing yourself beyond your comfort zone is the key to unusual breakthroughs in life. Mayer believes in this ideology. How can you achieve a breakthrough? What barriers can you bust through in your business?

2.     I have a theory that burnout is about resentment. And you beat it by knowing what it is you’re giving up that makes you resentful.

At some point in our lives we all face burnout, but Mayer has a thought-provoking point. Strive to identify what the missing link is and incorporate some parts of that into the way you do things.

3.     If you can find something that you’re really passionate about, whether you’re a man or a woman comes a lot less into play. Passion is a gender-neutralizing force.

Go for what you’re passionate about no matter what it is and who you are. As Mayer says, it’s the great equalizer.

4.     You can be good at technology and like fashion and art. You can be good at technology and be a jock. You can be good at technology and be a mom. You can do it your way, on your terms.

Never let one thing about you define who you are. Human beings have complex characters and often where talents and passions meet is where the wonder happens. Mayer has a passion for technology and a talent for aesthetics.

5.     It’s really wonderful to work in an environment with a lot of smart people.

Surround yourself with people who are better than you and reshape your ego. An environment of brilliant people will bring about amazing results and change. Mayer knows it and says it’s wonderful.

Yahoo Auctions


Yahoo Auctions USA formally stopped posting auction listings on June 3, 2007, with all auctions terminating later that month. There is just one thing to say about Yahoo! It offers one of the most complete, affordable and simple to use auction services on the Internet.

Yahoo! Auctions have some of the most informative detail pages available to buyers. They include detailed postings of bidders’ history and questions to the seller. Their extensive browsing and searching features, allow you to narrow your search options by subcategory, price, location and payment. Furthermore, there are no seller fees. All listings are free.

Although Yahoo! Auction services are outstanding, they do not allow sellers to open stores, there are a lot of product limitations and their popularity pales in comparison to that of the top two services.

Yahoo! Auctions makes buying easy. The details pages are very instructive. They include information about the product, seller, payment, shipping and general auction facts. There are additional tabs located above the picture of an item for sale and the details section describes the item’s bid history and a complete question and answer log from other buyers that have contacted the seller with questions about the product. This is one of the few auction sites we found that was so comprehensive in its item disclosure.

The Countdown Ticker in Yahoo! Auction was very useful. It counts down the time of the auction in real time. You do not have to refresh your page every few moments to see when time is running out. However, you do need to refresh your page if someone else bids on the item.

In order to avoid buyers swooping in and stealing an auction at the last minute, sellers have the option to have five minute extensions placed on items. This means the auction will not end until bidding is inactive for a consecutive five minutes.

Our general experience with Yahoo! Auctions was exceptional. The service is easy to use whether you are buying or selling. Yahoo! provides all the necessary auction information on an item’s details page and a useful help section makes sales and purchases safe and successful.
