Being CEO

evernote-0295

people have this vision of being the CEO of a company they started and being on the top of the pyramid…

What it’s really like: everyone else is your boss – all of your employees, customers, partners, users, media are your boss. I’ve never had more bosses and needed to account for more people today.

The life of most CEO’s is reporting to everyone else … if you want to exercise power and authority over people, join the military or go into politics. Do not be an entrepreneur.”

Phil Libin, CEO of Evernote.
