Jeff Bezos’ Amazon Corporation and Why It’s a Blue Chip
Jeff Bezos and Amazon have had a complicated relationship since Amazon was created. Amazon made its first sale under the name “The Jeff Bezos Show.” Recently, the company’s CEO and founder, Jeff Bezos met with Trump at the White House. During this meeting, it is likely that Amazon may be negotiating with the government over the regulations surrounding EBay. The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is currently examining the manner in which Amazon operates its online retail stores. Amazon has challenged the laws governing online sales and how they affect their business model.
As we’ve all known, Amazon is run by one man, Jeff Bezos. But what is it that makes Amazon unique compared to other organizations? What is it that separates it from the mediocre life force of a CEO or the life force of a president? In short, what is it that could make Jeff Bezos and Amazon potentially be the next person in line for the president?
To answer my own question, we need to look deeper into the company’s DNA. The DNA of any successful corporation is based around its founders and leaders. In other words, if there were no good leaders in Amazon, nothing else would ever happen in the organization. Jeff Bezos is not liked many CEOs and entrepreneurs. His parents were both teachers, so he grew up surrounded by books and knowledge.
If Jeff Bezois was not surrounded by the knowledge and intellectual comfort of reading his father’s works during his formative years, what could he have become? Well, he could have become the CEO of a company that sells blue chips, that could provide a home for millions upon millions of people, and which has the most powerful and expansive distribution system in the world. However, this would still be a product of evolution, and it would happen at a pretty fast rate given all of today’s changes. The point here is that Jeff Bezois and his Amazon are following the same basic evolutionary process that every successful company must go through. And they are doing so successfully, making them a blue chip company on Wall Street.
What makes Amazon different, and might they be able to hold onto that status for the future? Well, as has been written about in many business biographies, including mine, Amazon is following in the footsteps of Google, and Microsoft. These companies have been considered to be the ultimate examples of evolution in business. If they can do it, then maybe Amazon can, too.
In conclusion, what I might suggest is that you look into the business history of Amazon and realize that Jeff Bezois, who are the CEO, and therefore responsible for the success or failure of this company, is following the same basic biological process that other successful companies have followed. And if you follow along with what I’ve said here, you might very well be able to follow along with these same processes in your own business. Indeed I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.
