People that are not too cautious about obstacles because they see further. Others may call them “arrogant”, but in fact, it is a necessary component to be able to start a company. You have to believe in your knowledge or capabilities just because everybody else will say you are going to fail. The same attitude works for years — I saw this attitude 30 years ago and I see it now. As an entrepreneur, you have to have a vision you are able to express. You can evoke in people sense of curiosity, dream… a smile. A lot of good designs just make you smile. In 1983 there were no internet, but we believed the computer had the ability to provide its user with emotions. We wanted to create that and we believed in it.” - Jeff Burton.
