Opportunity or Lesson on Trust?
14 years ago, a student at Harvard invited 5 people over to his dorm room to discuss a business opportunity. Only 2 of the 5 people showed up.
Today those 2 people are Billionaires: Dustin Moskovitz $9.9 Billion and Eduardo Saverin $5.8 Billion.
And the guy they met that night? Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook, whose current net worth is: $35.7 Billion.
There’s nothing more expensive than a missed opportunity…
OR…would you say…
15 years ago, 3 Harvard students invited a young hacker into their social club to discuss a business proposition. They did not have him sign an NDA. Today, those brothers are multi-millionaires due to their settlement, and the hacker who stole their idea is one of the richest men on earth.
There is nothing more expensive than trusting the wrong person!
Would you agree with the opportunity or betraying on trust?
The lesson is ALL ideas should be shared with an NDA. Regardless of who you know, how well you know.
