To Our Clients & Friends: Welcome to our weekly series “Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed.”  Each week, we share a favorite video clip of a successful entrepreneur, investor or business leader on a variety of topics.  This week, we present Tim O’Reilly, the founder and CEO of O’Reilly Media and a brilliant entrepreneur.

In this interesting, five-minute clip from a couple of months ago (courtesy of Stanford University’s Entrepreneurship Corner), Tim discusses the following three nuggets for entrepreneurs:

  • the importance of “getting…deeper into your customers’ problems”;
  • how “great companies have big, hairy, audacious goals” (citing Built to Last); and
  • how “great companies have an idea about transforming the lives of their customers”  (citing “Who Do You Want Your Customers to Become?”).

I hope you enjoy it.  Cheers, Scott
