Has there ever been a bigger douche biscuit in business?
It’s not because he grew a huge business and then drove it into the ground. That’s been done plenty of times before. It’s because he really wasn’t trying to grow an actual business at all. He was building a cult. All of which was built on this idea of “we.” Then he screwed the “we” left his team broke and broken and then escaped with a golden parachute worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Never before has a man needed his ass physically whipped more than Adam Neumann. Okay, probably not “never before” but this guy definitely needs his ego put in check.
This messianic wannabe is a con artists completely full of shit and his antics make for an absolutely wild and fascinating story.
