Groupon’s ex-CEO Andrew Mason recently wrote a blog post about what he plans to do next. He is moving to San Francisco later this summer and will be spending one day a week at Y Combinator for the next several months.

Surprisingly, he has also recorded a music album in L.A. called Hardly Workin’, which is due to be released soon. The album will feature seven songs of motivational business music targeted at people entering the workforce.

The songs are designed to help young people understand some of the ideas that Mason has found to be a key part of becoming a productive and effective employee. He writes:

I managed over 12,000 people at Groupon, most under the age of 25. One thing that surprised me was that many would arrive at orientation with minimal understanding of basic business wisdom. “Haven’t you read any business books?  Good to Great? Winning? The One Minute Manager?” I’d ask. “Business books? Not really our thing,” was the typical response. I came to realize that there was a real need to present business wisdom in a format that is more accessible to the younger generation.
