Seeing Failure as Opportunity

David Neeleman, JetBlue

Neeleman tells the story of his first startup failure during college, and the airline partner he was working went out of business. He shortly thereafter received a call from June Morris, who encouraged him to come and build Morris Air. Morris Air grew and prospered, and was sold to Southwest for 130 $M, with Neeleman as the second largest shareholder at the time.
