Still. Good for Donald.
What worried me was his acceptance speech. In it, he said:
"He's strong, he's smart, he's tough, he's vicious, he's violent -- all of the ingredients you need to be an entrepreneur, and most importantly, hopefully he's smart because smart is really the ingredient," the 60-year-old billionaire said of Baron during the ceremony.
Smart, tough, vicious and violent -- that's Donald's recipe for success. Although the two most loathed professions in the US are doctors and lawyers, one well-placed salesperson behaving badly can clear a room. Seemed to me that Donald had made a world view out of Conan the Barbarian's mantra. When asked in this groundbreaking film (um, yeah) what was best in life, he answered: To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women!
In Love Is the Killer App: How to Win Business and Influence Friends, Tim Saunders touts the value of being a corporate love bunny. Pretty simple concept, but I think he's on the mark. While many would love to have Donald's money, we just can't square his behavior or thinking with the basic skills our mommas taught us.
