Some of his more valuable insights:
Be a leader and not a follower.
Men make money, but money doesn’t make men.
Make others rich and you’ll make yourself rich.
The true entrepreneur is a creator and not an opportunist.
Have a plan and perfect your plan before you launch.
Surround yourself with people who can be better than you.
Do what you love.
