sharing ideas & working with the people was the most inspiring thing for Bill Gates as he said : {Once asked what his best business decision was, Gates replied without hesitation that it came down to picking people. “Deciding to go into business with Paul Allen is probably at the top of the list, and subsequently hiring a friend, Steve Ballmer [Gates’ successor as CEO at Microsoft]. It’s important to have someone who you totally trust, who is totally committed, who shares your vision, yet who has a little bit different set of skills and who also acts as something of a check on you.”

Says the 56-year-old Gates about Ballmer: “Some of the ideas you run by him, you know he’s going to say, `Hey, wait a minute. Have you thought about this or that?’ The benefit of speaking off somebody who’s got that kind of brilliance is that it not only makes business more fun, but it really leads to a lot of success.” }
