The Bill Gates Lessons (Businessman or Artist?)
Well it goes without saying that Mr Bill
ionaireGates is the world’s richest self-made man. But How did he get that way?
Have you read Outliers? If not, I highly suggest it. It definitely sheds some light on parts of Mr Gate’s story we aren’t often made aware of. What i love about the following article though, is how they break down the crux of the Bill Gates success story. Two observation they make that remind me of every successful artist i know of or have worked with: 1) he obsessively clung to his initial vision, and 2) he created a platform based upon individuality and a love for the ‘craft’ first…
Of course a 3rd observation the article makes that doesnt sound so ‘artist-y” is he aggressively made sure his team was getting goals accomplished that set the team up to grow RAPIDLY and for the LONG-TERM! These are major lessons for all of us here :-$ enjoy….(click here for entreprenuer profile on Bill Gates)
On a side note, here are some pictures of his main home… the thing is, most of the house is built underground into the hillside, so it looks much smaller than it actually is. For instance, you won’t see the actual stream that flows from outside through the property…but I think you’ll get the point though. (Click Here for a Virtual Tour of Gates Manor)
