For Anyone Starting A Business…
business advice from Jeff Bezos
Jeff Bezos is arguably one of the most successful businessmen alive today, and is sought after by business owners for insights on how to achieve even a fraction of that same success.
In his presentation at Amazon’s re: Mars conference, Bezos had this to share (and we thought it was pretty cool!)
“Take risk. You have to be willing to take risk. If you have a business idea with no risk, it’s probably already being done. You’ve got to have something that might not work. It will be, in many ways, an experiment.”
“Many of those experiments will fail, but “big failures” are a necessary part of the journey toward success”, he said.
“We take risks all the time, we talk about failure. We need big failures in order to move the needle. If we don’t, we’re not swinging enough. You really should be swinging hard, and you will fail, but that’s okay.”
