Michelle De Guzman is executive assistant and personal assistant to Gideon Yu (Co-owner and former President of the San Francisco 49ers, and former CFO of Facebook and Youtube).
I really enjoyed my conversation with Michelle and know you will too! Michelle shares the story of her first interview with Gideon, tips on working with a high profile executive (a role that’s not for everyone), and a save-the-day story about Pokemon. Enjoy!
(I’m) truly thankful for great friends and colleagues who tell me the hard truths that allow me to become better.
