        SurveyMonkey掌門人:人生是一場馬拉松

        《財富》 2013年07月10日

        他是網絡創業的急先鋒,互聯網泡沫破裂時,他創辦的第一家公司只賣了個白菜價。但他沒有放棄創業夢想。如今,他的SurveyMonkey已經是業內領先的網絡市場調查公司。他說,人生和事業都是一場馬拉松,而不是短跑。但如果一切重來,他希望自己創立的是他老婆當首席運營官的那家公司。

        ????《財富》雜志舉辦的科技頭腦風暴大會(7月22日至24日在美國科羅拉多州阿斯彭召開)定期召集科技創新領域最優秀和最聰明的思想家相聚一堂。每周,《財富》雜志都會重點推介一位大會嘉賓,分享他/她對于商業、科技和創業的真知灼見。本周,我們代表年輕企業家向網絡調查公司SurveyMonkey的CEO大衛?古德伯格就工作之余的生活、最崇拜的公司以及行業建議提出了10個問題。他的回答如下。

        你獲得過的最好建議是什么?

        ????對任何事都要有耐心。把人生和工作當作一場馬拉松,而不是短跑沖刺。

        ????當前就業市場非常嚴峻,對于即將進入這個市場的年輕人,你想說些什么?

        ????尋找那些正在經歷巨大變化和快速增長的業務和行業。增長很重要。這正是有所作為的機會所在。同時,大家還需要確定自己喜歡和擅長的領域。

        如果你不做現在的工作,會做什么?

        ????我一直想做一名音樂監制。為電影或電視劇找到合適歌曲,我真的非常喜歡那種感受。能把這件事做好的人真是創意天才。

        你錯過的最佳機會是什么?

        ????我希望2007年時我有能力從雅虎(Yahoo)買回我的音樂業務。那時,我們是網絡電臺、音樂視頻和收費音樂行業的領先者。

        如果有機會,你希望創立哪一家初創企業?

        ????Facebook。通過真實身份把世界互聯起來,這一點已經永遠地改變了這世界。

        ????(古德伯格是Facebook高管謝麗爾?桑德伯格的丈夫。)

        你最大的失敗是什么?

        ????互聯網泡沫破裂的時候,我沒辦法,只好按白菜價賣掉了我的第一家公司。

        你最崇拜的商界或科技界人物是哪位?為什么?

        ????比爾?蓋茨——他是一位偉大的領袖。我創立第一家公司的時候,他曾給我以啟迪。而且,他現在是全世界最偉大的慈善家,更能啟迪我們。

        你還崇拜其他哪些公司?為什么?

        ????我擔任董事的《華盛頓郵報》(Washington Post)。(公司CEO)唐?格林漢姆以其無可比擬的風范、道德規范和商業頭腦引領這家公司渡過了非常艱難的一段時期。

        你如何保持生活的平衡?

        ????我主動管理自己的時間,對于和家人一起吃晚餐這樣的重要事情我全力兌現。

        企業家必須讀商學院嗎?

        ????肯定不用——把上商學院的這些錢拿來當創業的種子資金吧。創業的唯一途徑就是動手干,從經驗中學習。沒有一所學校能教會你必須知道的東西。

        ????Fortune's Brainstorm Tech Conference(July 22-24 in Aspen, Colo.) regularly brings together the best and brightest minds in tech innovation. Each week, Fortune turns the spotlight on a different conference attendee to offer his or her own personal insight into business, tech, and entrepreneurship. This week, we asked SurveyMonkey CEO Dave Goldberg to answer 10 questions about life outside of work, the company he admires most, and industry advice for young entrepreneurs. His responses follow.

        What is the best advice you ever received?

        ????Patience in everything. Run the marathon, not a sprint in life and work.

        ????What would you say to a group of young people looking to enter the tough job market?

        ????Find businesses and industries going through dramatic change and growth. Growth is good. That is where the opportunities will be to make an impact. You'll also find out what you like and what you are good at.

        What would you do if you weren't working at your current job?

        ????I always wanted to be a music supervisor. I really love the craft of finding the right song for a film or TV show. The people who do it well are creative geniuses.

        What was your biggest missed opportunity?

        ????I wish had been able to buy back my music business from Yahoo in 2007. We were the leader in online radio, music videos, and subscription music.

        What is one startup you would have wanted to found?

        ????Facebook. Connecting the world through real identity has changed the world forever.

        ????[Goldberg is married to Sheryl Sandberg.]

        What has been your biggest failure?

        ????Having to sell my first company at a very low price when the dotcom bubble burst.

        What business or technology person do you admire most? Why?

        ????Bill Gates -- he's a great leader. He was an inspiration as I started my first company. And he is even more of an inspiration now as the world's greatest philanthropist.

        What other companies do you admire? Why?

        ????Washington Post where I am on the board. [CEO] Don Graham has guided the company through a very tough period with grace, ethics, and business savvy that are unparalleled.

        What do you do to live a balanced life?

        ????I proactively manage my time and commit fully to things that are important like dinners with family.

        Is business school necessary for entrepreneurs?

        ????Absolutely not -- take the money you would spend and use it to seed your business. The only way to be an entrepreneur is to do it and learn from experience. No school will teach you what you need to know.
