Microsoft CEO, Steve Ballmer, is a giant ball of fire. Just watch the first video to get a mere glimpse of what I’m talking about. I’ve heard a lot about Steve, as perhaps many of you have as well. . .some of it glowing, some of it not so. If you’ve read “Leaving Microsoft to Change the World,” by John Wood, founder of Room to Read, you’ve no doubt read about a side of Steve you don’t know. Read that book. . .it’s a wonderful read and worth your time.
I enjoyed this short talk by Steve as he’s talking about maximizing downturns to turn your entrepreneurial dreams into reality.
He sheds a little light on his own entreprenurial adventures early on after leaving Stanford as he talks with a Standford entrepreneurship group.
Short and sweet, but a good chat that just might getcha’ thinking about starting your own business today.
Neat thing about Steve’s presentation style. . .to me, at least, he always seems like he’s on the edge of a joke, which makes listening to him really fun.
If you’re an entrepreneur, you’ll benefit from checking out Microsoft’s BizSpark program, that allows for a host of opportunities, among them free software for some qualified companies.
