Marissa Mayer’s career has involved its moments of controversy, it’s true. Serving as the CEO of Yahoo! the last four years, she’ll soon be stepping down following the company’s merger with AOL, and not all her business practices while at Yahoo!’s helm were met with praise. But there’s no denying the impact Mayer has had in the tech industry and the fierce work ethic that allowed her to achieve it. Straight out of Stanford, she joined Google in 1999 as its 20th employee — and the company’s first female engineer — and after moving to Yahoo!, she ranked as the youngest CEO on Fortune’s 50 Most Powerful Women list.
Here are some quotes illustrating Mayer’s inimitable moxie that are sure to leave you inspired.
