|1||Net worth: $400 million.|
|1||Downturns are the best time to start businesses because you develop discipline that's very lean and mean in terms of how to spend money. And those habits serve you very well in good times.|
|2||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.|
|3||The biggest mistake entrepreneurs can make is trying to do everything themselves. They usually blow up when they try. I did an inventory of every deal I've ever done and it turned out that every single deal I made money on was a partnership, and every colossal failure, where I lost millions, was something I tried to do by myself.|
|4||An employee is a cost center. Everybody is replaceable. Somebody above you is trying to get rid of you to save costs. You have to understand what you are and make sure that you're always adding value, so that you're the last person to be whacked.|
|5||[on Steve Jobs] He was so abusive! Toughest guy I ever met. We were in the boardroom at Apple and he went into a diatribe like I had never heard before.|
|6||I'm not trying to make friends, I'm trying to make money.|
|7||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.|
|8||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.|
