Quotes About Innovative Business

"I intuitively did well when I was leading the whole team, but once we got past 25 people, you cant do that. And so I made a series of classic mistakes in hiring. And not building a good middle management structure. And not recruiting a board that could help me build the company. Big mistakes in picking a successor, big mistakes in having an undisciplined product strategy—I was much more interested in having distinctive, innovative products and thinking about what would make sense for a product line for our business overall—and big mistakes in expanding too fast and not having discipline about what we were doing. So I give myself a C or C– on all that stuff." - Author: Jessica Livingston

Quotes About Death Sentences

"She had a brief affair with a novelist, W. L. River, whose Death of a Young Man had been published several years earlier.
