Christina Canters: For you, star, when did you first realize that this type of skill was so powerful?

Richard Blank: When I was a young man, I was, I was taught when you go over to a friend's house to wipe your feet and ask for permission and, and just. Know, your pleases and thank yous. And so instead of being known in elementary school as a bad child and not asked to come back, most of the parents said, you're one of the few friends I allow Christina to hang out with.

And so, um, I realized that by being polite was better than cursing. It's better to clean a window than to break a window. And, you know, you could always grow up and, and, you know, live life and, and figure out the stupid things to do in your childhood. . But when I was in my twenties and individuals were going for job interviews and they were too well rehearsed, they would stumble upon themselves.

And I tried that one time and I was very out of character. And then I said to myself in the mirror, it was right when I graduated college, I was never gonna do that again. Christina, either they're gonna love me or they're not gonna wanna work with me because if they love me, it's gonna allow me the sort of liberty and freedom
To be me and you'll get the best out of. Because if I'm in a in a box, I'll be miserable and you will not know the real person. And I try to do that here. I allow people to grow naturally. There's labor laws and people have to do certain things, but if somebody has an idea, Or I see the potential in someone, I will bend them but not break them.

I'll get them to stand up and do public speaking. I will have them sit in meetings with me and contribute. I will listen to their calls and not just say, Hey, great job, but I will let them know what they did. And so by allowing me to work with individuals from a C level where I could be humble. I could be, um, you know, show this sort of gratitude and interest in them.

It's amazing how many people tell me I'm the only boss that's ever done something like that. And so with all these people, cuz I compete against Amazon, they have thousands of people here, all the bells and whistles. But I do know this, Jeff Bezos didn't play pinball with everybody. . I walk the roads and I know everybody's.

I'll be there downstairs to say hello to your mother when she fix you up at work. And I don't need to be thousands, but my couple hundred that I have, the people that are with me, that's what they were looking for. They wanted the smaller shot. They wanted their name to be known. They wanted to grow. And that's why my friend, I believe that water seeks its own level.
