The Litmus Test for “Am I in the Right Business?”

I’ve written quite a bit about the evolution of my definition of ROI (https://bit.ly/3wPEwzz), from Return on Investment to Ripples of Impact. But, the former is easier to measure than the latter which is why impact investing has a checkered reputation in some quarters.

When I travel back to San Francisco after not having been there for three months, 50 books are awaiting me, nearly half of which come from authors who want me to have a copy of their books. Ask my partner Oren or my executive assistant Tiana; I’m not exaggerating.
