A very successful business woman once said, “The people in your business matter far more than what specific business you’re in.”
It’s the people who really make a business, you see, not the product. Too many people get it the wrong way around.
It’s a bit like college. You remember it so fondly, not because anything you did was that special or unique (study, go to class, sit around talking, go to parties, try to find a mate, i.e. the same as millions and millions of other students), but who you did it with (i.e. your lifelong, best friends).
And years later, when you look over your career, the same rule applies. The happiest times were not, for the most part, because of the money you were making, and/or the product you were cranking out, but the interaction in the office.
And what an adventure that was.
