Listen and be open, but don’t let anybody tell you who you are. This was just one of the many stories telling us all the ways we were going to fail. Today, Amazon is one of the world’s most successful companies and has revolutionized two entirely different industries.
A lot to still prove out here for sure, but the Rivian team is world class, and @RJScaringe is one of the greatest entrepreneurs I’ve ever met.
Now, RJ, where are our vans?!
.@reedhastings and Ted Sarandos and the team at @netflix get it right so often. Their internationalization strategy isn’t easy, and they’re making it work. Impressive and inspiring. (And I can’t wait to watch the show.) vulture.com/article/planet…
After many failures and setbacks in gaming we have a success. So proud of the team for the persistence. View setbacks as helpful obstacles that drive learning. Whatever your goals are, don’t give up no matter how hard it gets. @playnewworld (1/2) cnbc.com/2021/09/30/new…
Good exchange of ideas on climate change with a lot of passion around preserving and restoring the natural world. There might also have been a side conversation about who’s better — Asimov or Clarke. The meeting was useful and enjoyable. Thank you, @BorisJohnson.
Proud of the program we have in India to hire and train deaf associates at our delivery stations. Managers learn basic sign language to be able to communicate. Meeting this group was a moving experience for me.
Amazon partners with thousands of kirana stores all over India as delivery points. It’s good for customers, and it helps the shop owners earn additional income. Got to visit one in Mumbai. Thank you, Amol, for letting me deliver a package. #MSME
Just landed in India and spent a beautiful afternoon paying my respects to someone who truly changed the world. “Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever." - Mahatma Gandhi.
Toured @LeeMontessori in Washington D.C. with a team from Day 1 Academies. It was great to meet these kids — they’re energetic and energizing. Lee is doing an amazing job unleashing their love of learning.
Picture perfect flight @blueorigin. And this vehicle has now flown to space & back six times making this a new milestone. We carried 23 payloads today including thousands of postcards from kids all over the world for @clubforfuture. Keep them coming kids & we’ll keep flying them!
Nice! Amazon ranked #1 best managed company. Definitely the result of strong teamwork from people who care deeply and passionately about customers, their fellow employees, and the environment. Huge thank you and kudos to all Amazonians. twitter.com/WSJ/status/119…
Excited to announce this year's Bezos Day One grants. Thank you to these 32 organizations in 23 states working to end homelessness. I recently spent time with the amazing team at Community of Hope in Washington, D.C. – one of last year’s grantees. bezosdayonefund.org
