Steve Ballmer, Chief Executive Officer of Microsoft recently gave a commencement speech at the University of Southern California. I thought this piece of advice was particularly useful, especially for aspiring entrepreneurs.
I would like you to think about three things that I’ve had a chance to decide are really important based upon the time I’ve spent at Microsoft, and I’ve spent in the information technology industry.
Number one, great ideas matter. Number two, find passion. And number three, be tenacious, be irrepressible.
