Build a Great Team

Johnson Says There’s No “Magic” to Business Success
Tiffany Black, March 18, 2011, Inc.

Johnson: “When you are a successful business person, you are only as good as your team. No one can do every deal alone.”

Q: You have multiple businesses and you are the personality or spokesperson for so many of them, how do you manage it all?

Johnson: “Again, it’s putting together a great executive team and great people who work to manage the businesses. That’s No. 1. No. 2, I do very few deals. I turn down more deals than I actually do. They have to be the right deals. They have to be the right corporations.”

Johnson: “Make sure that you don’t have a ‘good’ staff or a ‘good’ management team, but a great one.”

Wealth can only be protected by strength

“Hannah Arendt, a postwar philosopher, once said that the most dangerous thing in the world is to be rich and weak.  Wealth can only be protected by strength, as unlike the poor, the wealthy are envied and have things others want, and unlike the strong they are subject to power.  My father used to say that the richest man in the world couldn’t survive a cheap bullet.  The same is true of nations.  Wealth without strength is an invitation to disaster.”

 -George Friedman, Flashpoints: The Emerging Crisis in Europe
