Business Ideas: 3 Business Lessons From Howard Hughes by Evan Carmichael Today we’re going to look at how a young man, orphaned as a teenager, turned his love of aviation and created a multi-billion dollar fortune. This is the story of Howard Hughes and the top 3 lessons that you can learn from his success. “I intend to be the greatest golfer in the world, the finest film producer in Hollywood, the greatest pilot in the world, and the richest man in the world.” – Howard Hughes Howard Robard Hughes, Jr. (December 24, 1905 — April 5, 1976) was an American industrialist, aviator, engineer, film producer, director, philanthropist, and was one of the wealthiest people in the world. When Hughes was a teenager he lost both his parents and was left with a family inheritance from money his father made by selling his inventions. Ever ambitious he was quoted as saying “I intend to be the greatest golfer in the world, the finest film producer in Hollywood, the greatest pilot in the world, and the richest man in the world.” Hughes aggressively pursued business interests in Hollywood films, airlines, and hotels and casinos to expand his empire. He managed to turn his $1 million inheritance into a $2 billion fortune. Equivalent to $6.6 billion in today’s dollars, Howard Hughes was and still would be considered one of the richest men in the world. Action Item #1: Surround Yourself With the Best After inheriting his father’s company as a teenager, Hughes recognized that he didn’t have the knowhow to run the business and looked for someone who could. He hired 36 year-old Noah Dietrich to be his accountant and right-hand man on a $10,000 a year salary. For the next three decades, Dietrich eventually became director, vice-president and CEO of various branches of Hughes’ empire. According to Robert Maheu, a chief advisor to Hughes: “Dietrich was delivering Howard profits of $50 to $55 million a year. Big bucks in those days.” Action Item #2: Don’t Give Up On Your Goals The Hughes H-4 Hercules was the world’s largest flying boat, the largest aircraft made from wood and had the biggest wingspan of any aircraft ever built. It was contracted by the U.S. government to transport troops across the Atlantic to avoid German U-boats in the Second World War. Nicknamed the “Spruce Goose” it was three times the size of the largest plane ever previously built. Nobody thought Hughes would ever get it off the ground but he kept pushing towards his goal despite the naysayers. According to Hughes: “This thing was a black sheep. Nobody wanted to fool around with it or become contaminated by it. We were working in a complete vacuum as to information based upon prior performance and prior design… I defy anyone today to design an airplane substantially more efficient than this one for its purpose.” Action Item #3: Be Hands On With some […]

How to manually change a memory: Steve Ramirez and Xu Liu Steve Ramirez and Xu Liu shoot laser beams into the brains of living mice to activate and manipulate their memories. In a funny and — perhaps — unnerving talk from TEDxBoston, they explain the fundamental principles behind their experiments and broach the big questions that future advancements in this line of research may force us to answer. When we close our eyes and think back to our childhood, to our first kiss, or to this morning’s breakfast, our brains perform the remarkable task of mental time travel and thereby enrich our lives with memories. How does neural machinery give rise to something as seemingly ephemeral as memory? Recently, Hollywood inspired our imaginations by proposing that memories could be artificially triggered (think Total Recall), erased (think Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), or even implanted (think Inception). Now, neuroscience has plucked these ideas from the tree of science fiction and grounded them in experimental reality. The catch: our subjects are the movie stars of the laboratory setting–rodents. This talk will introduce how revolutionary techniques from our lab have made it possible to isolate and manipulate specific memories at the level of single brain cells with just flickers of light, as well as the societal ramifications of doing so.

Gloria Swanson – This Is Your Life Ralph Edwards welcomes Gloria Swanson to “This Is Your Life”, with guest appearances by Mack Sennett, Francis X. Bushman and Rod LaRocque. Note: this is NOT the complete show (at least seven minutes of the ending are missing). However, until, and if, “This Is Your Life: Volume Two” is ever released on DVD, and if they include this show, and the Frances Farmer “tribute”, I can’t find these shows anywhere else.
