Max Levchin Quote: “The very first company I started failed with a great bang. The second one failed a little bit less, but still failed.

Max Levchin Quote: “You’re going to pull out your phone and try to use whatever is the most appropriate app on your iPhone or your Android device. Yelp saw that very early on. And when we launched the mobile product, we saw immediate growth, and we were stunned.”
Max Levchin Quote: “We’re all put on Earth for a limited amount of time. Am I using in a way that is great, or good enough, or wasteful?”

Max Levchin Quote: “But between the founding and the actual PayPal, it was just this tug-of-war where it was like, ‘We’re trying this, this week.” Every week you go to investors and say, “We’re doing this, exactly this. We’re really focused. We’re going to be huge.” The next week you’re like, “That was a lie.”
