Ken Hendricks, worth 2.6 billion dollars, is Inc. magazine’s Entrepreneur of the Year for 2006. An excerpt from the interview:
What has been the most rewarding moment in your decades of entrepreneurship?
Our last annual managers meeting. I gave my motivational talk and then I asked, How many people here started as a forklift operator, a warehouse person, a roof loader, or a truck driver? We had 600 people and almost half of them stood up.
