Phoning in rich

Brilliant nugget from the genius I was quoting about Herb Simon last week, this week he passed along a line from Meg Whitman.

When she bought their company at Ebay for a lot of money, she said “I don’t want to see you guys start phoning in rich”.


The aimlessness and unproductive mood of the very rich, who are busy “fixing things at their other house”.

Worth noting.

The advice to founders who feel they have nothing and the competition has everything? Be better than that. You can beat them.
