The 50-year career
Jon is right at the beginning of his career with Salesforce, and he says he can see himself working there for the next 10 years of his 50-year career—the idea that you can keep inventing yourself over the course of five decades, and push yourself in new directions.
“One day, I would love to teach the history of rock and roll,” he says. “I would love to teach management. I would love to teach marketing and basic finance courses. I definitely want to teach in the last decade of my career, when I’ve got a lot of life experience to share with students.
He will also continue to work on growing Parks and Records; he’s hopeful his eldest son, who plays music, will one day become involved in the business.
“Ultimately, I want to continue helping nonprofits and schools achieve their biggest ambitions,” Jon concludes. “It feels like a good place to be.”
