If you’ve ever bought something off eBay or made other financial transactions on the Internet, you’ve probably taken advantage of the billion dollar company co-founded by Max Levchin, Pay Pal.
Levchin sold Pay Pal for $1.5 billion in 2002, but don’t let that fool you into thinking he’s lounging on the retirement patio every afternoon sipping lemonade. These days, he keeps busy as the CEO of Slide, which allows people to share pictures over Internet social networks like Facebook and Myspace.
He maintains a grueling physical fitness routine, cycling long distances-as much as 80 miles on the weekends-then stocking up on vegetarian protein to replenish.
“I’m not really into breakfast, but my wife, Nellie, is a huge breakfast fan. We’re both vegetarians and obsessively healthy eaters. Given the training, I tend to pound the protein, so breakfast will be some sort of yoghurt or an egg-white omelette with asparagus, which is very popular in California right now. Croissants are an occasional treat for us, perhaps on the weekend.”
