ME­DIA MOGUL: BOSS AT ABC, PARAMOUNT, 20TH CEN­TURY FOX; FOUNDER, IAC

Don’t think of a spe­cific job, so to speak, or a spe­cific ca­reer, like “I’d like to be this” or “I’d like to be that.” You should find an area that in­ter­ests you and just get on the high­way, and it will lead you wher­ever you lead it. For me, I’ve only re­ally worked for three com­pa­nies: ABC was eight years, Paramount was ten years, and Fox was eight years. That’s my en­tire work­ing-in-a-com­pany life, so to speak. I got to a point where I wanted to work for my­self. If you can, do it—which is more than just the word “can”; there’s a lot cooked up in there—you should. You can con­trol your own destiny, what­ever that is, good or bad.
