Jeff Bezos gives a message for entrepreneurs who want to start a business. Namely, be prepared to take a big risk and fail.
“Take risks. You have to take risks, take the courage to experiment,” Jeff Bezos said as quoted by the entrepreneur.com page.
He admitted that if in the early days, maybe some experiments would fail. But this is considered to be an important part of the journey to success.
“We take risks all the time and we always talk about failure,” explained Jeff Bezos.
According to him, failure will move everything. If it fails that doesn’t matter.
Initially Jeff Bezos founded Amazon in 1995 and at that time only had 10 employees. Since then he has transformed his company into the foremost in the world.
His company has a capacity of almost USD 860 billion. Jeff said that in addition to taking risks and failing, an entrepreneur must also have a spirit of enthusiasm.
Especially above all, entrepreneurs must be obsessed with customers. “Don’t satisfy them, but enjoy them,” concludes Jeff Bezos.
