An Entrepreneurial Lullaby: The Reid Hoffman Edition

“Take intelligent and bold risks to accomplish something great. Build a network of alliances to help you with intelligence, resources and collective action. Pivot to a breakout opportunity.” — Reid Hoffman (@quixotic) (founder of LinkedIn, entrepreneur, investor, strategist)

Reid Hoffman shares words of wisdom in his recently published book, The Startup of You.  So brilliantly and eloquently said, so fundamentally true that it applies not only to entrepreneurship but to life in general. This is the lullaby that should be sung to every child before they float away to dreamland.

I had the pleasure of meeting Reid at a private reception being giving for him by Mayor Mike Bloomberg (I was an invited guest of the Mayor). I have to say, I’ve heard a lot of things about Reid (all nice, by the way) but after talking with him and experiencing how he thinks and engages people, it seems his success in life was likely a forgone conclusion long before even he realized it. Very kind and generous with his brain capital (ideas).

    that DWP would face insolvency.Now isn’t one April fools story? How can DWP have almost $ 1 billion on hand and over $100 million of “surplus” monies to transfer to the City’s General Fund.Humphyville and Moore should have been the “go to” guys for all of the news outlets to express another side of the story.I guess the working class taxpayers play the fool in this fairytale.
