I actually think being an entrepreneur is a state of mind. If you're going to be an entrepreneur, my thesis is that you have to sacrifice everything for some period in your life to be successful. You have to be myopic and completely focused and unbalanced in every way. Once you've achieved success, you're free to do whatever you like.
Money tears families apart for lack of, and for too much. It's a very powerful force and you have to understand it and respect it.
I'm not trying to make friends, I'm trying to make money.
One of the things I've learned is that women can be very astute investors because they're far less emotional about money. They're far more pragmatic.
