Starry-eyed young entrepreneurs often ask me, "What's the formula for success?" After they hear whom I 've worked for and the companies I've developed, they want the holy grail business-extraordinary financial wealth. Each walks away dejected when I frankly admit, "There no formula."
As a boy, I made a misguided vow that propelled me into becoming an "ice man" in the corporate world, a man who didn't care for anything but his own advancement. I was a high level executive at General Mills, Pepsi Co, Frito Lay TacoBell, and Disney. I helped build a company worth billions(MFS), and was a founder of another (Level 3 Communications) worth over 100 billion. In fact, the Internet largely sits on that company's infrastructure. But at the height of my career, tragedy struck and a terrible, wonderful decision had to be made.
If you want to understand the underlying values of success, my journey will assist you. If you have been debilitated by pain, my story will bring comfort.
