Why Many Successful Entrepreneurs Come Across Like Jerks

Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg and Bill Gates are among the most successful entrepreneurs of the modern age, men who created products and services that changed the fabric of American society. They are inspirations who proved that one person can change the world, if they put their mind to it.

  What do Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg, our current president and Homer Simpson all have in common? They’ve all worn the same outfit, pretty much every day. Why? It isn’t a coincidence.

But, if you ask him, that’s not what he points to as the secret to his success.
