I was at the 9Mile Labs Cohort V graduation day for their latest demo day. And in front of me was a promotion desk full of schwag from HIRED. One of the items was this t-shirt. It fits great. The color is good. The logo of their company couldn't be any more simple and straight forward.
The style of the shirt is good, but a little bit too neutral in color, so I thought that this $CMCSA booth at the mall provided some nice bright red and white to spice up the photo.
Did you know that $CMCSA has a market cap of $150B?
I never realized how much of a massive company it is.
And the CEO is the son of the founder of the company.
In the empire building ambition that a man can sometimes have, only a handful of businessmen are able to actually achieve it in their lifetime. And to have the legacy passed down to his son, who one day becomes the Chairman of the Board (control), President (possession), and CEO (possession), while all the while having a significant number of shares and voting power (ownership); is an astonishing act of business acumen.
In the modern business world of major companies, when you don't have harmony among the three "houses" of checks and balances, then the company will be in lots and lots of unnecessary strife.
The three houses are the shareholders (ownership), the executives and C-suite (possession), and the Board of Directors (control).
Read 'Zero to One'. It's fantastic.
p.s. that hat I'm wearing is perfection.
