Saya jadi tahu bagaimana Reed Hasting memulai Netflix, Reid Hoffman mendirikan LinkedIn, Howard Schultz membangun kultur minum kopi di Amerika melalui Starbuck. Ada pula Jeff Bezos, Mark Zukerberg, Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, dan lainnya. Bisnis tidak punya sifat qidam seperti Allah SWT. Sebesar apapun bisnis itu pasti punya awal. Tentu saja awalnya perusahaan kecil. Gagasan yang solutif bagi masalah orang banyak dan kegigihan si entrepreneur untuk fokus pada nilai membuat perusahaan bertumbuh pesat! Dari mereka saya belajar bahwa bisnis adalah menciptakan nilai. Bisnis bukan untuk mencari kekayaan, bukan juga kemapanan. Bisnis adalah memudahkan orang lain. Bisnis harus membuat dunia menjadi lebih baik. Semakin banyak orang terbantu dengan bisnis kita semakin bagus.

    There are so many people on this earth And it's really good to read people like a book I remember one person who inherit his business from his father, I thought it's gonna be dull, easy, and boring, but nope it started by how he leave his family and home and choose his own path met a woman... so many things to learn... If you are into biographies and entrepreneurship, leadership, business management... Good to read.

    I guess only men can change the world. This book is a good start if you don't know the stories of these businesses. However, all "stories" reak of positivity as if these companies/entrepreneurs are the Holy Ghost in person. I guess only men can change the world.

    I liked it. I liked the interview style format with questions throughout and found that having 1 chapter per person helped keep me moving forward. A few of the interviews/profiles were very inspiring; many presented ideas I'd never thought of; and a few of them were dry and hard to relate to. There was really a diversity of profiles. Overall I felt encouraged to dream big and open my thought to new possibilities. Not bad! Quite disappointed that Oprah is the only woman profiled in the book. That w I liked it.

Overall I felt encouraged to dream big and open my thought to new possibilities. Not bad! Quite disappointed that Oprah is the only woman profiled in the book. That was not to my liking. And her section (though taken from interviews that the author didn't actually hold with her personally) was a huge breath of fresh air and down to earth quality. I really appreciated the section on Oprah. Also not thrilled to find that so many of the people profiled were American. Not all, but many. But despite those two downsides, as I mentioned before, the book still managed to have a diversity of ideas. I would recommend it to others and would happily skim through it again. For about the final 3rd of the book (and I should have started earlier) I began collecting quotes I liked or felt were particularly thought provoking. "You need to be modest, but have the courage and respect and the interior feelings that you can win. You never can think you are less than any other athlete or team in the world. You needed to have the philosophy of the winner and needed to believe that you will become the winner." - Carlos Nuzman, Rio Organizing Committe for Olympic Games "To me poor people are like bonsai trees. When you plant the best seed of the tallest tree in a flower pot, you get a replica of the tallest tree, only inches tall. There is nothing wrong with the seed you planted, only the soil base that is too inadequate. Poor people are bonsai people. There is nothing wrong in their seeds. Simply, society never gave them the base to grow on. All it needs to get the poor people out of poverty is for us to create an enabling environment for them. Once the poor can unleash their energy and creativity, poverty will disappear very quickly."- Muhammad Yunus, Grameen Bank "...poverty in the world is an artificial creation. It doesn't belong to human civilization, and we can change that. ...So the only thing we have to do is to redesign our institutions and policies, and there will be no people suffering from poverty." - Muhammad Yunus, Grameen Bank On staying innovative when getting bigger: "The way I like to think about it is not to maintain our culture but to improve it and increase it. Scale presents challenges but also opportunities." - Sergey Brin, Google "I believe a compassionate capitalist is one who is a capitalist in the mind and a socialist at heart. ...You have to realize that society contributes customers, employees, and investors. Creating goodwill with a society is very important." - Narayana Murthy, Infosys "The biggest bottleneck to progress all of us have is our own mind. All the problems are there in our mind. If we can work on the problems in our mind then we can work on the problems in the exterior. Most of us fight a constant battle between our mind, which is the engine that makes the progress,, and our mind-set. Our mind-set is the collective set of our experiences and our assumptions. Only those of us who are able to defeat the mind-set in favor of the mind are the ones who will make progress." - Narayana Murthy, Infosys "You have to embrace change and innovation. ...how do we differentiate? All business, and I don't care how different they are, have to be built around a differentiated product or service. You can be protected by a patent; you could find a great location; you could create a great product; but commerce being what it is, somebody is going to find a way to turn your advantage into a weakness. They are going to figure out how to segment your market or differentiate what they do versus you and peel off part of your market. So you have to constantly differentiate." - Fred Smith, Federal Express Corporation (ie FedEx)

    Succinct, diverse and inspirational. Some really good advice for entrepreneurs and start-ups from successful business leaders from wide ranges of businesses. However, if you want to learn more about companies, then the amount of information may not be adequate. Also, the book can be better if there were more women and leaders from other countries.

    In the book i read was World Changers by John A. Byrne. This book was a non fiction book on entrepreneurs who started small businesses and eventually became world known companies. The plot for the book is how to start a company and make it in to a very successful company. Some important people in the book is Steve Jobs, who created the company Apple or Fred smith the creator of Fed Ex. The theme of the story is to tell you that the simplest idea can turn into a multi million dollar company. I re In the book i read was World Changers by John A. Byrne.
