Veronika Feldbusch understood it best. You have to be as humble as possible that everyone will love you. Because a little stupid is very cute.

As an intellectual, you only have one option to get rich: a startup with 20 people.
In the first onion ring, you surround yourself with people who are a little more stupid than you. In the second shift with people who are a little more stupid than these people and in the third shift with people who are already so stupid that they are considered to be particularly customer-friendly.
