#187 L-Week 17(1) ジェフベゾス スピーチ(4)


Amazonの創始者ジェフベゾスが、2010年 母校のプリンストン大学で行った卒業スピーチからの抜粋です。スピード的にはゆっくりと話しをしているので、是非内容理解にトライして下さいね(^^) 何回かに分けてシェアしていきます

  • I got the idea to start Amazon 16 years ago.
  • I came across the fact that web usage was growing at 2,300 percent per year.
  • I had never seen or heard of anything that grew that fast. 
  • The idea of building an online bookstore with millions of titles, something that simply couldn’t exist in the physical world was very exciting to me.
  • I just turned 30 years old and I’ve been married for a year.
  • I told my wife Mackenzie that I wanted to quit my job and go do this crazy thing that probably wouldn’t work since most startups don’t and I wasn’t sure what would happen after that.
  • McKenzie also Princeton grad and sitting here in the second row told me I should go for it.
  • I was working at a financial firm in New York City with a bunch of very smart people and I had a brilliant boss I much admired.
  • I went to my boss and told him I was going to start a company selling books on the Internet. 
  • He took me on a long walk in Central Park listened carefully to me and finally said that sounds like a really good idea, but would be an even better idea for someone who didn’t already have a good job.
