Issue 133 - 05 | The Self-Disruptor’s ManifestoBy Jay Samit

I have applied these insights to raising over $800 million for startup companies as well as launching new businesses in billion-dollar industries as diverse as telecommunications, music, and ecommerce. I didn’t go to the right schools or know the right people, but I did learn how to disrupt my own belief systems to be able to reposition myself to take advantage of new opportunities and achieve success. And I’ve been able to do it again and again—achieving resilience and security in an oftentimes unstable business landscape by disrupting myself.”
