Great entrepreneur story with great entrepreneur take aways!

Define future needs, and attempt to control them.Nicolai Foss and Peter Klein stress an entrepreneur's judgment making "in the specific context of exercising control over heterogeneous resources in the service of satisfying future imagined customer preferences.
Hints of branding, and improving on things differently.However, for the seventh-richest man in America, it's much simpler. "This is the nature of entrepreneurship. It's the willingness to take a risk," Adelson said. "It's a willingness to do things a little bit different."
Once again that big time entrepreneurs aren't engaged in "do what you love" and "do what you know" BS.Also, it's apparent that entrepreneurial abilities lie outside the particular skills and knowledge needed in a specific industry.

This is really great. People usually get the misconception that you have to be an expert in something before you can start a successful business.

Through wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; and by knowledge the rooms shall be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.
