Brilliance from Bezos:
Amazon.com's founder waxes poetic on customers, regrets and business acumen
According to Forbes and other sources, Jeff Bezos has surpassed Bill Gates and become the world's richest person. The Amazon.com founders' wealth is estimated to be around $90 billion. Yes folks you read that correctly - $90 billion. Considering all that he's done, including accumulating more wealth than any business person ever, Bezos naturally has a few quotes on business that are of interest to franchise owners and potential franchise owners.
A Serial Entrepreneur:
Bezos is a serial entrepreneur and amongst his many companies investments are Blue Origin the private space travel company, The Washington Post, AirBNB, Google, & Whole Foods. Bezos founded Amazon in the mid-90s as an online book retailer. The company rose right through the dot-com bubble and into the new millennia. Some speculate that in the years to come, drone delivery will allow for same-day delivery in most urban environments.
Bezos' comments could be applied to a number of businesses operating in a number of industries, however we felt a few of them hand special meaning for us at You've Got Maids®. Let's dissect a few of them:
“The most important single thing is to focus obsessively on the customer. Our goal is to be earth’s most customer-centric company.”
At You've Got Maids, our customers are kings and queens. Everything we do works toward bringing cleanliness and order into their house to make way for a happy home.
“The framework I found which made the decision incredibly easy was what I called – which only a nerd would call – a ‘regret minimization framework’. So I wanted to project myself forward to age 80 and say, ‘Okay, now I’m looking back on my life. I want to have minimized the number of regrets I have.”
How many entrepreneurs are working day jobs they don't like? How many want to start working towards building their own money machine, but just can't break away from the comfort of employment? We work every day at You've Got Maids® to help budding entrepreneurs take the leap and minimize their own regrets.
