To Our Clients & Friends: Welcome to our weekly series “Helping Entrepreneurs Succeed.”  Each week, we share a favorite video of a successful entrepreneur, investor or business leader on a variety of topics.  This week, we present Jonathan (“Jony”) Ive, the Chief Design Officer at Apple and a close friend and collaborator of Steve Jobs.

In this brief interview from last year with Graydon Carter of Vanity Fair, Jony shares a couple of important lessons he learned from Steve: (i) focusing, including learning to say “no”; and (ii) putting your work ahead of your ego — i.e., how you believe you are perceived by other people.

I hope you enjoy it.  Cheers, Scott
