Barstool Sports CEO Erika Nardini: How I beat out 74 men to land my dream job, and lost a ton of friends in the process
For a lot of her career, Erika Nardini worked at big companies: Microsoft, AOL, even Fidelity Investments. Then she took a risk by becoming CEO of Barstool Sports. Barstool is a comedy website known for the kinds of things guys talk about over beers: news, sports, and girls. On this episode of “Success! How I Did It,” Nardini tells us what attracted her to a site some say is sexist, why as many as 8 million so-called “Stoolies” check out the site multiple times a day, and why she likes to text prospective hires on the weekend.
