In the following video, Motley Fool analyst Brendan Byrnes sits down with Maynard Webb, former COO of eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY) and author of Rebooting Work: Transform How You Work in the Age of Entrepreneurship.

Brendan Byrnes: And let's talk about when you were at eBay. They purchased PayPal actually, turned out to be an incredible acquisition for them; PayPal now being the primary driver of growth. Did you have that sense when you were at eBay that it was going to be such a success?

Maynard Webb: We love PayPal and we knew it was going to be big. We actually had debates and a lot of jokes over whether this was going to be bigger than eBay at the time but I would just say that we're very pleased with where it's been and better than we had hoped for.
