Stephanie McMahon is WWE Chief Brand Officer but she did not hold a top position right from the beginning. She has tasted success after she joined his father’s company following her degree in Communications from Boston University in 1998. She started working full-time.

Speaking to the SBJ I Factor, Stephanie admitted that she once micromanaged a team to the point where her father had to step in. Vince then told Stephanie that she “failed him” in that role. She further revealed a lesson which she learned from her father, WWE Chairman Vince Mcmahon. Goldberg Uses ‘Bad Language’ In Front Of Raw Fans
“I think sometimes when you make mistakes, that’s when you grow. Not all the time. You can certainly grow without making mistakes. But I think that there’s a lot of positivity when you make a mistake. Because if you own it, first and foremost, you assess it, you study it, you learn why you made the mistake and how to correct it, and you make sure you don’t make that mistake again. But I think it could be very painful.”
“One key lesson that my father taught me — I was micromanaging. I was doing what I thought was right, I mean, all the best of intentions, but I really was absolutely micromanaging this particular team. My dad told me that I had failed him and it was a very, very hard, painful lesson, especially because he’s my father, not just my boss, right? To think that I had failed him was something I took on so emotionally and it was painful for me and I think for a lot of people, making mistakes and doing things that you wish you didn’t do are painful. But you grow from them if you’re able to, and it is worth it. It’s why I don’t have regrets in life. I’ve made mistakes, don’t get me wrong. I’ve definitely made mistakes. But I think I wouldn’t be who I am today if I hadn’t made those mistakes and had the opportunity to learn from them. I think that’s just so important.”
Stephanie is holding an important position in the company and following Vince, she is likely to takeover the business.
