“Think about what are the things you know will be true even 10 years from now.” Jeff Bezos, who’s worth a whopping $70 billion, says. “Your competitive set will change, the technologies that you have available to you will change, but the customer needs — if you find the right ones — will tend to be stable in time, and then you can build strategies around them.”
