Crazy is a Compliment

The Power of Zigging When Everyone Else Zags




When pursuing our dreams, taking smart risks is the only safe option

These days taking chances isn't just for college dropouts in hoodies. We all need to be more entrepreneurial or risk being left behind. But how do you take smart risks without risking it all?

As the cofounder and CEO of Endeavor, that's Linda Rottenberg's expertise. With inspiring stories, original research and practical advice, Crazy is a Compliment is your road map to getting started and going bigger. It brings to life iconic entrepreneurs, reveals how companies like Burberry have broken the corporate mould, and introduces us to entrepreneurs like Leila Velez, who started an $80 million hair-care company from her kitchen sink in Rio.
