Submission + - Why's Google Having Mom of 3 Attend 1 AM Meetings?

theodp writes: Google exec Marissa "I-Don't-Really-Believe-In-Burnout" Mayer sensed that something was wrong with Katie, a soccer mom of three.

'So, we say you're never going to miss another soccer game or be late for a recital,' Mayer assured Katie (video). Problem solved!
