“I remember on the last week, the graduating class, and in those, it’s sort of like an amphitheater with about 100 people in it. And you’ve been there for two years, you got your little nameplate in front, and they bring in guest lectures to talk to you before you jump into the real world. And this guy comes in. And he says, I’ll never forget it. He doesn’t, he walks up that the professor’s hands on the floor, and he just goes in the middle and just looks up at everybody, for maybe it felt like forever. But it was really, maybe 60 seconds, didn’t say a word. And the whole room. Like you could have heard a pin drop. I’ll never forget it. And then he says, You guys think you’re so hot. You think that you’ve come here and you’ve got an MBA, and you’re going to go out in the world and you’re going to rock and you’re going to be incredibly successful. I’ve got news for you, for two-thirds of you. The world is going to chew you up and spit you out. You have no idea what’s going to happen. You are so irrelevant. You have proven nothing, you’ve done nothing. If you think an MBA means something, it’s worthless. And I remember the guy beside me, I’d been beside me for two years. We were up in the one row down from the top so we can chat all the time you hide a little bit. Yeah. And so I said to him, Barry was his name. I said, Barry, this guy is such a

What a he is what arrogant he is. Well, guess what he was right. He was 100%. Right. And the reason he pointed that out was the idea that your experiences make you who you are, over time, as an entrepreneur, as a parent, as a person, as whatever you are as a brand, whatever you are, it’s your experiences and how you deal with them, that gives you that equity over time. And for many people, they can’t make it if it doesn’t work out for them. They don’t have what it takes to take on the abuse that the world’s gonna throw at you. And just to give you full circle in a kumbaya, you know, Circle of Life, Lion King kind of moment. I got caught saying the same thing a couple of months ago at the Harvard MBA Group. I and I realized I was saying the same thing that that guy said to me decades ago, I said to these kids, you all think you’re hot. You’re Harvard MBAs, you are nothing burgers, you are nothing. And so there you have it. What he really explained was the idea of experience and how you will have to listen to your gut to navigate the bombs of your career and you have to trust it. You have to trust your gut. Every time I’ve lost dough every time and I’ve lost plenty. Luckily, I’ve had more successes than failures when I didn’t listen to my gut, which is my experience. And I shouldn’t and he was right. He was absolutely right. It was great information by Wouldn’t assimilate it because I couldn’t put it in context. Now I understand it. So number two is you need to build that experience and all the way through listen to your gut, even when you’re young, your gut will tell you, you’ll know when it’s right and wrong. And don’t go against your intuition. That is actually your radar, that’s your DNA speaking to figuring out what the next move is going to be.”
