Jack Ma practicing his pitch for #Alibaba in 1999.
- Position Alibaba as a global player.
- Adopt Silicon Valley work ethic. Forget the 9-5. You will lose with this work ethic and should not start on this journey.
- Chinese are smarter and more innovative than Americans. If we apply ourselves, one Chinese person can beat 10 Americans.
- Internet is a bubble. But the dream of the Internet isn’t. When the bubble busts in the coming years (he was right), Alibaba will be primed for growth.
What I love about this is his enthusiasm and delivery in just 2 min of these 4 key principles that are at the core of Alibaba success:
- Think big
- Work hard
- Believe in yourself
- Be patient
