3. Jeff Bezos owes him dinner
Personally, I find this one to be particularly shocking. Back in '99, before it became an empire, Amazon was ranked as an under performer! But then, Mark stepped in. Mark worked with Bezos' team to improve customer relationship and overall performance. I would say, he did a pretty nice job.
4. Marketing was not his first choice
Mark’s father was a self-determined engineer. He knew he wanted to be an engineer, even if the people in his family were resistant to his goals. This story inspired Mark. He knew he wanted to enter a career that he would find fulfilling. It started with engineering, moved to business and then he finally found himself passionately invested in marketing and entrepreneurship. Now, as the Director of Customer Listening, Mark takes an anthropological view of discovering and telling your unique story so that it feels relational. It’s safe to say that he found his groove.

Within my first few interactions with Mark, I could tell he was a dreamer. No, a big dreamer. He aims high so that he can push himself.

Quite the goal, if I do say so. Mark believes to achieve great things, one must set ambitious goals.
