159 — Eric Yuan

Podcast Summary:

Eric has quite the background. As one of the founding engineers and Vice President of Engineering at WebEx, he LOVES connecting people digitally. And, with Zoom he has created an experience that I have found to be truly magically.

Since we use Zoom for our Founder & CEO peer groups, Trail Team 10, I just had to get Eric on the show so you and I can learn more about the leader behind this great communication tool. With over 370 people on the Zoom team and over 320,000 customers, Eric sure is doing something right.

In this interview Eric shares:

  • Why he left Cisco to create Zoom
  • His biggest leadership struggle
  • And the one leadership skill he wishes he would have learned earlier

Do you need quality design work, fast? When you are growing your startup, you and your team will eventually need designs for logos, business cards, t-shirts, banners, social posts, etc. I personally recommend DesignCrowd the next time you need some design work. We used this amazing crowdsourcing platform to help us design our logo for “Trail Team 10.” Not only was it easy, but it was a great experience collaborating with creative designers around the world. We received over 100 quality designs to choose from. Check it out and let me know what you think.
