« Is Hard Sell Good Business? Ethical? | Main | When Brainstorms Fizzle »


Robert Hacker

Given that I may have started this post, let me supplement your list with three thoughts.

1. Great entrepreneurs that build billion dollar companies pursue large visions with little concern for the effect on their net worth. It's all about achieving their vision.

2. Great entrepreneurs are very analytical when it comes to the key growth drivers. Maybe not universally analytical but where it counts. (May just be your planning point restated.)

3. Great entrepreneurs have oversized egos but they inspire people rather than turn them off. Empathy is a key here.

In summary, I like your post. Well done.
