In this month’s issue you will find a feature involving Vivek Ramaswamy, founder and CEO of Roivant Sciences. I begin telling the story of the interview by describing my rumination on two sayings: “Invest in what you know” and “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.” These are just a two of the many pieces of wisdom (probably picked up from my father) that I have imparted to my two children over the years. I imagine they would tell you that my approach to sharing such advice involves an inordinate amount of repetition. Well, apparently it worked, because during the holidays both of these now young adults used these (and other) phrases while sharing about their recent semester experiences. Now, I will readily admit to taking great delight when hearing these phrases parroted back and have actually gotten much better at biting my tongue and not saying, “I told you so.”
