5-Second Innovation Lesson from Russell Simmons

Another great quote from the History Channel series, “The Men Who Built America.”

“The idea is to see what’s missing. That’s what a creative entrepreneur does – he serves people with things that they need. … Sometimes you see something that everybody has to have. ‘Oh man, I gotta give them this.’ And then you go to work on it, because they need it.”
-Russell Simmons

5-Second Innovation Lesson from Sumner Redstone

Another great quote from the History Channel series, “The Men Who Built America.”
“They don’t think in terms of money – they think in terms of wining. Now naturally if you win big in business money follows. but that shouldn’t be your objective. Your objective should be to win. Win win win, all the time. Not sometimes, all the time.”
-Sumner Redstone

5-second Innovation Lesson from Jack Welch

Jon and I recently started watching “The Men Who Made America,” the History Channel series about Vanderbilt, Rockefeller, Ford, J.P. Morgan, and Carnegie. The first episode contained three great quotes, so I’ve decided to launch a series on 5-second innovation lessons. First, from Jack Welch:

“Innovation is not a big breakthrough invention every time. Innovation is a constant thing. But if you don’t have an innovative company, coming to work every day to find a better way, you don’t have a company. You’re getting ready to die on the vine.”
-Jack Welch
