“Believe in the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The mavericks. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. We know they’re not fond of rules and have no respect for the status quo. The world quotes them, disagrees with them, glorifies and vilifies them. But the world does not ignore them. Because they change things. Yes, they push the human race forward. And even though some may see them as the crazy ones, we see and acknowledge their genius. Because the ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who are.”
[Adapted from Steve Jobs].
In 2013, we asked the grounded theory research question:
HOW, WHAT AND WHY DO MAVERICKS OPERATE THE WAY THEY DO IN BUSINESS?
Artists to chocolatiers, venture capitalists to DJ’s, technologists to philanthropists.
We searched for Mavericks who laugh in the face of the status quo, HaHaHa!!!
