    Glad you gave it a read. Ray Kroc was more than the burger guy or the asshole who screwed over the McDonald bros.
    Public opinion and the spread of certain information can tarnish a man's credibility and it's a damn shame.

    I just watched it. It's a great movie.

    The main takeaway is certainly persistence. There are a ton of other takeaways too, just like you guys pointed out.

    I haven't read every post in the thread, but I think no one mentioned the scene where Ray tells his lawyer to not give his wife a single share of the company.

    Ownership is key. The brothers, for example, lost a lot of money just by not getting that 1% of the company.

    I think he didn't give her any ownership because he was bitter about her lack of support during his mcdonalds hardships.

    It could be. Either way, owning just 1% would have made her rich. There's no way to deny that ownership is important. Even in a small company, 1% could make the difference between being the shot caller or not (example: owning 51% of a company).
