Once you factor out her two Harvard degrees, her mentoring by Larry Summers, and her climb from Google to Facebook, with stock options worth more than $1 billion — Sheryl Sandberg and I have a lot in common.
We both cried at work. In her new book, “Lean In,” Sandberg reveals that she teared up in front of legendary Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg, who offered to hug her. I sobbed in front of legendary Globe Spotlight editors Gerry O’Neill and Steve Kurkjian, and numerous others. They didn’t hug me, but they did endure me.
