What is your favorite place to think big?

That’s the question LinkedIn founder Reid Hoffman said he asks every one of his guests on his podcast “Masters of Scale,” from Mark Zuckerberg to Bill Gates.

On a “Masters of Scale” episode from earlier this year, Hoffman revealed several of the responses he’s gathered over the years. He learned that Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg does her best thinking on the treadmill, for example, while Netflix CEO Reed Hastings thinks best while sitting in his living room.

Then there’s Spanx CEO Sara Blakely, who said she wakes up an hour early every morning so she can drive around Atlanta aimlessly, all because she does her best thinking in the car.

Here’s what Zuckerberg, Gates, and 12 other successful entrepreneurs said when asked about their favorite places to think big.

Airbnb CEO and cofounder Brian Chesky said his favorite place to think big was the Walt Disney Family Museum in San Francisco.
