It was the Wild West.” (05:25)“Your line managers are always gonna be – or they should be anyway – optimists. They should be strategic. They should be looking for opportunities to grow their operation. But ultimately they do compete, and they compete for their parent company’s checkbook.” (09:51)“Which kinda makes the achievement of [Elon] Musk and Tesla pretty remarkable. That’s not a normal guy. You can tell that capital has been very much a part of their whole story…he’s the most interesting figure maybe in my lifetime.” (28:40)“And they [Target] still do that. You can still listen to those folks talk about investment capital and ask ‘are we gonna invest in our store or are we gonna invest in our distribution capability for online?’ This is the methodology where you go about doing it.” (32:06)LINKS MENTIONEDAmpliFi Capital Corp WebsiteKevin’s LinkedInNick’s LinkedInLee’s LinkedInBOOKS MENTIONEDMy Years with General Motors
