The Story of your Financial Monster

 The creation and management of a company are quite fascinating and philosophical processes:

 

You are a little bit like Dr. Frankenstein creating a monster. [Entrepreneurship]

You build your company from the ground up. [Startup]

You teach it how to walk and feed it your passion, blood, sweat and tears. [Commitment]

As your company grows, it becomes more independent, but still needs your guidance. [Vision]

You understand your company and feed it what it likes the most. [Strategy]

It expands so much that it becomes bigger than you. [IPO]

Your company becomes this independent hungry monster that makes friends. [Mergers]

Or eats enemies on the market. [Acquisitions]

When you are fortunate or wise enough to find good scientists. [C-suite Executives]

They take care of your monster, which carries on your legacy forever. [Apple]

Even when you are gone. [Steve Jobs]
