Selected ideas from this book:
Terry Matthews: This book has “compiled the thoughts of people that I have known and worked with for many years. I have learned to respect and trust their views and experience. I regard this book as a highly useful collection of some of the shrewdest nuggets of hard-won wisdom available anywhere.”
“Changes, crises and challenging times – all bring opportunities with them. An entrepreneur sees these moments as the time to take a risk!”
Peter Sommerer: Change changes everything. The # 1 rule: there are no rules.
Deborah Weinstein: Do not build a company by the goal of your exit plan, but build a successful company and an appropriate exit path will happen.
Denny Doyle: “During the eighteen years that I was with Digital, I got pretty well everything I asked for in terms of resources and in every case, it was because I packaged the request in the form of a business plan.”
