We love the stories about the small entrepreneur that in 10 years disrupts an industry. The success story is told quickly and glosses over years of sweat, brilliance and painful growing pains. I've always been intrigued by what's missing. The story starts with an owner putting in an intense number of hours. Then finishes with teams of people, working togehter and committed to the vision of the organization.
Over the last 25 years I've worked with lot's of successful business owners, building thier technology. You learn a lot from the brilliance and the mistakes made by brilliant (and not so brilliant) leaders. I wanted to share a tactic that most brilliant leaders develop on thier path from success to industry leadership.
