Peter Carbonara – Building a great company

Share this quote:
You can’t build a great company without great people. But how do you know them when you see them? Over the past few years, a number of companies in a wide range of industries — from airlines to steel, computers to hotels — have asked themselves what separates their winners from their losers, good hires from bad, and they all arrived at the same answer: what people know is less important than who they are. Hiring, they believe, is not about finding people with the right experience; it’s about finding people with the right mind-set. These companies hire for attitude and train for skill.

Warren Buffett – Just sit back and think

Share this quote:
Warren BuffettI like to sit and think and I like to spend a lot of time doing that. Sometimes it’s pretty unproductive, but I find it enjoyable to think about business or investment problems. They’re easy, it’s the human problems that are the tough ones. Sometimes there aren’t any good answers to human problems; there is almost always a good answer with money.
