From Richard:

When I was only 23 years old, I fantasized about creating something. Thirty years later, it was a name recognized worldwide, with 200 stores in six countries, 4,000 employees, and catalog and internet businesses approaching $750 million in sales.

And it was fun! We made and sold clever, useful, and attractive products—which we designed from scratch—that made life easier, more fun, and more enjoyable.

What a great life experience!

Along the way, I learned things to help you in your life and career: how to work with people, how to negotiate, how to sell, and how to make money.
