Don is one of the greatest guys to work with. His concern for students, the entrepreneurial process, and general pedigological skills are amazing. It’s great to sit with Don and discuss things in public that we have discussed for years. As the video opens with us discussing our relationship, it’s clear we have a special working relationship at U.C. Berkeley.
As Don points out, the basic expectations have to be aligned to your passion. If they don’t. Move one. Get to the place where you are active and aligned with internal and external market forces. Not only does that bring you a personal sense of joy, it can bring you an incredible sense of professional accomplishment.
