In 2013, when Facebook bid $3 billion for Snapchat, he followed his favourite maxim. turning down the bid. Spiegel's company is now valued at $20 billion! Google has also tried to snap up Snapchat, but Spiegel is sticking to his guns.
Another thing that sets Spiegel apart from other business leaders is how he holds meetings. Rather than traditional meeting rooms, this modern 28-year-old entrepreneur prefers to stroll down the cement path outside his Los Angeles office with his co-workers.
To show our admiration of Spiegel’s’ unconventional approaches, we take a look at 5 of his top quotes on success in business and life!
“People are going to copy your product if you build great stuff. Just because Yahoo has a search box doesn't make it Google.”
“It's not about working harder; it's about working the system.”
“Conforming happens so naturally that we can forget how powerful it is. But the thing that makes us human are those times we listen to the whispers of our soul and allow ourselves to be pulled in another direction.”
“Someone will always have an opinion about you. Whatever you do won't ever be enough. So find something important to you. Find something that you love.”
“I just try really hard to be me, and sometimes that means I'm unfiltered. I try to give people myself because I think making a great product is being in touch with how you feel about things and being able to express things. I really hope I can stay in touch with how I feel about things and I'm able to express that.”
