Jeff Bezos Talks Amazon, Blue Origin, Family, And Wealth

Mathias Döpfner, the CEO of Business Insider's parent company, Axel Springer, recently sat down with Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos to talk about the early days of creating Amazon, what he's learned since then, how he funds his rocket company, Blue Origin, and what it's like when the president of the United States is your biggest critic.

The sit-down interview happened in Berlin, where Bezos received the Axel Springer Award 2018.

Business Insider tells you all you need to know about business, finance, tech, science, retail, and more.

The reason Jeff Bezos has 310 billion dollars is because he doesn’t have to pay for shampoo every month

Jeff Bezos made nearly 9 million dollars during the duration of this interview
The interviewer needs to listen more and interrupts less.
He acts as an actor would act playing him
2:10 "the great thing about humans in general".. speaking as an outsider

It’s so ironic how everyone desires to become rich, but then also hate on the rich.
The interviewer cutting Bezos off throughout the interview was quite irritating.

Bezos looks like he is run by some AI algorithm.

F. K.:
He looks overwhelmed by his own prophecy. He was running on barely any profit for years but knew things would go big one day. You can see how many sacrifices he had to take to be where he is now. You work hard for decades knowing things go big, yet as a human you keep having doubts, and then there you go, being the richest man of this planet but you kinda wait to wake up, but you start to realize that's it. That's the feeling he has. When initial determined surreality turns into reality.

Imagine spending $10,000 worth of Amazon stock when it first came out, what it would be worth! Bezos only owns 11% of Amazon stock.

Let's hope *he will build a decent space ship company,* so that humanity can move forward into the affordable space exploration.

Thank you ever so much, Jeff. Amazing interview. You and I actually think a lot alike. A bit more so than other people whom I have seen. Keep doing amazing work. I will be on one of you space flights. For sure. As a bit of a sidenote, BECAUSE I have assets, in my home, that I choose to protect, I own a Ring doorbell (don't even think about it, people. If you breathe, around my unit, I shall know about it). I actually wouldn't have an Alexa at the moment, but am seriously considering acquiring one. I am doing some in depth research between yours, Google's and Apple's.
