What if, in addition to the brute strength, you layered in a mind keen enough to cash out two weeks before the “dot.com” crash, pull the chips off the table and walk away to play another day?

That’s but a fraction of the story of Steve Amos, founder of www.jewelry.com, the first of several monstrously successful internet companies.

    Wonderful man. Wonderful interview. Thanks Ridgely. Sad to hear he passed on. What was cause of death?

    • Dear Alfred,

      Unfortunately it was a massive heart attack. He was a wonderful man and has left a magnificent legacy. I am so pleased you are enjoying the series!
