This scene was missing from The Social Network: Mark Zuckerberg writing a salary and stock-option grant on a napkin and sliding it across to his sister. It was 2005. She changed it, to bump up the salary and lower the options. Mark crossed out her counter-offer and said, “Trust me.”
She did. She joined him and helped build Facebook. I find that story way more interesting than a crazy jealous girlfriend setting things on fire, but I’m no Aaron Sorkin. From #DotComplicated by Randi Zuckerberg.
If you’re a woman in a roomful of men and you bring in the coffee and the pastries, you’re the secretary. If you’re a women in a roomful of women and you bring in the coffee and the pastries, you own the room.
