A lot of entrepreneurs, I think, would benefit from studying someone like Jeff Bezos, who’s taken the mindset that everything needs to be written down into a Word document, six pages or less. It needs to be read. He actually has his board sit there quietly at the beginning of the board meetings and read it. He doesn’t know if they’ve read it in advance. Hopefully, there’s enough trust that you can actually get the materials out in advance and they can read it.
