The woman named Kara was reportedly hired through a US classified portal named Craigslist. She was paid approximately $8 an hour for the job that just involved slapping the person working next to her for spending too much time on the social media platform.
In a blog post, Sethi said that he was able to increase his productivity to 98% from 35-40% by hiring a woman for slapping him. The experiment was conducted nine years ago by Sethi.
However, the unique move to increase productivity has now caught the attention of Musk. In his reply to Sethi’s tweet, the billionaire sent two fire emojis, leaving the blogger impressed.
Within no time, Sethi replied to Musk saying, “I’m the guy in this picture. Is @elonmusk giving me two emojis the highest I’ll ever reach? Is this my icarus flying too close to the sun moment? Was that implied by the fire symbols Elon posted? Time will tell”. Also Read: Growth to exceed 10% in FY22 on strong agri recovery: Niti VC Rajiv Kumar
