If you’re reading this site, there’s a good chance that you wouldn’t mind being worth at least $100 million USD one day.
And while you’re willing to work hard to get there, you’ve probably also realized that working investment banking hours for the next 20-30 years is unsustainable.
If that’s you, then today’s interview with Richard Koch is right up your alley (yes, that’s a link to his Wikipedia entry).
This is unlike any other interview on the site – even those with senior bankers – because it’s with someone who has had a successful 40+ year track record in business.
Among other things, he:
- Worked at BCG and Bain, became a Partner at Bain, and then founded L.E.K. Consulting, which later grew to 1,000+ consultants.
- Wrote over 20 books on business, personal success, and philosophy, including The 80/20 Principle, which sold over 1 million copies.
- Became a successful investor and returned between 5x and 53x his capital in numerous private equity investments.
So it’s safe to say he’s accomplished many of your own goals.
We chat with him about all of that, his advice to recent graduates and current students just starting out, and what it takes to start your own firm and become a successful investor:
