At twenty-seven, Bo Peabody was an Internet multi-millionaire. In the heady days of the late 1990s, though, when every cool kid had an IPO, that wasn’t very remarkable. What is remarkable is that he’s even more successful today. He has co-founded five different companies, in varied industries, and made them thrive during the best and worst of economic times. Through it all, the one question everyone asks is: Was it his smarts that made him an entrepreneurial leader, or was it just plain luck? The truth is, Bo was smart enough to know when he was getting lucky. And he wants you to have the same advantage.
With proven methods for success and a witty, conversational voice, Bo takes the reader through the lessons his experiences as an entrepreneur have taught him. At the heart of Bo’s manifesto is a mantra that everyone, whether working for a multinational corporation or a solo start-up, should heed: If you want your business to be successful, make sure your work is fundamentally innovative, morally compelling, and philosophically positive.
Lucky or Smart? will teach you how to put yourself in a position to get lucky, create the right situations for success, and take advantage of every opportunity. It is the first truly authentic guide to an entrepreneurial life, a must read for anyone looking for his or her own road to fulfillment.
Bits of wisdom from LUCKY OR SMART by Bo Peabody
“Good entrepreneurs are not, per se, lucky or smart. They are just smart enough to know when they are getting lucky.” (pg.5)
“Greatness is exactly the wrong thing for entrepreneurs to strive for. I tell my colleagues: ‘Never let great be the enemy of good.’ A good decision made quickly is better than a great decision made slowly.” (pg. 19)
“As an entrepreneur, you’d better like odd people, because that’s who’s going to agree to work you. These are the smartest, most interesting people on the planet…” (pg. 26)
“Train yourself not to shut down when you hear the word ‘no.’ That is in fact just the time to really start fighting.” (pg 32)
“In every meeting, in every situation, you must always, always, always be gracious. The business world is a small place: what goes around comes around.” (pg. 38)
“The best use you can make of a BlackBerry is to buy them for all of your competitors. They’ll never have time for another creative thought.” (pg. 45)
“Your ego is both the most dangerous and the most useful weapon in your entrepreneurial arsenal. Use your ego when it is called for and check it at the door when you sense that it will get in the way.” (pg. 56)
