A little from his speeches:
“A person who sees a problem and wants to solve it himself, says, “I know”, “I do”, is an entrepreneur. Businessmen want to do something by themself! Money, business are only tools. Being an entrepreneur – it means to be a designer of changes. This is not an end in itself – to be an entrepreneur, this is the shovel that you use to build a road to the future.”
“What some consider your flaws, others – esteem. Just baseball players hit the ball with one force and golfers – with other. Surround yourself with the same people as you … With the same goals and aspirations. Environment plays a huge role, do not sit at a dinner at the table with the same friends for years, drive around the world, and get acquainted! This gives rise to new ideas and actions!”
