Larry Page v2

To Our Clients & Friends: Welcome to our weekly series “Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed.”  Each week, we share a favorite video of a successful entrepreneur, investor or business leader on a variety of topics.  This week, we present Larry Page, co-founder of Google and a brilliant entrepreneur.

In this brief speech (via Corporate Valley) from a few years back, Larry shares some solid nuggets for entrepreneurs, including the following:

  • “We actually tried many things that didn’t work. Google happened to work pretty well.”  (at 2:07)
  • “I just encourage you to take a little more risk in life, and I think if you do it often enough it will really pay off.”  (at 2:19)
  • “There are many areas where there is leverage available in the world – where one or two people, a good idea [and] a lot of hard work can really make a difference.”  (at 3:20)
  • “It’s sometimes easier to do something that’s harder because other people get excited about it, and you can get much more resource.”  (at 4:01)
  • “You can get tremendous resources to solve a hard problem, where as you might only get minor resources to solve a small problem.” (at 4:09)

I hope you enjoy it.  Cheers, Scott
