    4) Carlos Slim

    5) Darren Hardy (author of Compound Effect)
    6) Eric Schmidt (Google) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOVr8ATeEcY
    7) Evan Spiegel (Snapchat)
    8) John C. Maxwell (Leadership)
    9) Bill Ackman (Hedge fund)
    10) Al Pacino

    Great video, Evan! I have been watching these top 10s for a while and really enjoy the format and points from all of these great entrepreneurs! The big take away I got was staying on the right path, it can be tough when there are not always blue skies, but when most people quit is when you need to keep pushing. Thanks for all that you do!

    Liked your channel. Just small point that will make difference. Put the points larger than the current one, cause it’s too small when you use your mobile to watch these videos. Either you can put it in a strip line one by one, and the end of video, you can put all points together. Which is makes the points more visibility and memorable. Thank you again
