Brendan: Hey Fools, I'm Brendan Byrnes and I'm joined today by Maynard Webb, the author of Rebooting Work: Transform How You Work in the Age of Entrepreneurship.

First of all, thank you so much for your time Maynard.

Maynard: It's nice to be here.

Brendan: So my first question is overall in the book you tackle these outdated models of work that no longer sync up with kind of the individual's goals or maybe the companies goals. What's an example of that?

Maynard: Well, I think the age of paternalism and paternalistic companies is long gone. People no longer have jobs for life, most of us don't have pensions, those are all examples of outdated models of work where you're at one company forever, that's just gone!
