Most honest business book I've read!
28 October 2018
I've always been a big fan of Rand's transparent style and hard working attitude, which has always come across in his writing / speaking, but Lost and Founder really takes this to a new level.
There's so many valuable lessons here, not just in how to run a business (or the failures/learnings to look out for). But the big takeaways for me were life lessons. I love how Rand openly shares the real stories behind hard decisions and failures, where you know his approach is always trying to do the right thing for people first.
The empathy shown comes across hugely in many situations in the book - where taking care of people is top of his agenda, ahead of growing his own business / keeping shareholders happy.
In an ideal world you'd achieve both... but Rand can be very proud of what he's stood for, often against what others more purely business-focused would likely advise against. With this attitude, you can't help but want him to win - and in the long-term I have no doubt he will.
Look forward the sequel on how to be a success by doing things the right way!
