Ousted Groupon CEO puts on new spin on his CV

Andrew Mason, former CEO of Groupon, released his debut album on 2 July through iTunes and Spotify.

The album, entitled “Hardly Workin’”, contains seven tracks from the former punk-rock keyboardist turned CEO and is touted by Mason as a guide for working in the corporate world and heading a company.

“Executives, mid-level management, and front-line employees are all sure to find valuable takeaways. I've probably listened to the album over a dozen times now, and with each spin I feel like I learn something,” Mason wrote on his blog.

He encourages managers and executives to integrate not only the messages of the album, but the soundtrack itself into their business – ending meetings with “It’s Up To Us”, or popping “My Door Is Always Open” on a thumb drive and leaving it at a low-performance employee’s desk.

Groupon’s stock price has almost doubled since his termination, The Australian reported.
