Ken Langone is a billionaire businessman, investor, and philanthropist. He is best known for organizing financing for the founders of The Home Depot.
Ken Langone is a billionaire. He co-founded Home Depot and he’s also been on the boards of some of America's most renowned companies. Ken talked to me about capitalism, (his book is called “I Love Capitalism!: An American Story”), corporate governance, morality, and picking good people to invest in. But I also always say that this podcast is not just about business. I also got to learn from Ken about self-respect, death, having a good outlook on life and following your gut. His success is proof that you can live well and live true to yourself. That’s what I hope to keep learning for myself.   Links and Resources I Love Capitalism!: An American Story by Ken Langone   Also Mentioned My interview with Garry Kasparov  My interview with Sara Blakely My interview with Arianna Huffington Seinfeld Amy Schumer’s SNL monologue Giuliani Pete Cunningham Frank Blake Sam Walton Jack Welch Bernie Madoff Home Depot NYU Langone Health Centers Robert De Niro Walmart The Bible GE Jeff Bezos Warren Buffet quote, “It takes a lifetime to build a reputation and you can lose it in 5 minutes.” The Wizard of Lies Bob Nardelli Ross Perot Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Archbishop of New York Jim Kaplan who collaborated with Ken on his book Goldman Sachs Stanley Druckenmiller Harlem Children’s Zone Promise Academy Pam Goldman (Ken’s assistant) Castro Steve Easterbrook Jack Welch Strayer - Jack Welch Management Institute   I write about all my podcasts!
