Persistence and The Notion of the Big Idea

Trip Hawkins, Digital Chocolate

Trip Hawkins, chairman and CEO of Digital Chocolate, believes that persistence is a very important quality in entrepreneurs. It helps to overcome road-blocks and stick to one's beliefs no matter what others say, he adds. He talks about the notion of the big idea – doing something different than what everybody else is doing or something that nobody has thought of.
