Description

I'm Dan Schulman, the President and CEO of PayPal. Welcome to Never Stand Still, a podcast focused on conversations with other leaders and executives about business, innovation and entrepreneurship. I start each morning practicing martial arts because it brings me balance and focus. But it's also taught me scores of life lessons, including "If you stand still, you're asking to be hit." And I've applied that lesson throughout my career, not just in business, but in life. And that's the inspiration for this show.
