Bob Parsons : I told you so, Twitter!

GoDaddy founder, Bob Parsons, is well-known for his entrepreneurial acumen, often delivering advice in a direct, factual manner.

The former Marine and decorated Vietnam veteran, recently made a comment on Twitter, about the financial hardships the latter faces:

2011/Twitter refused deal easily worth millions every yr. Told me “we don’t care about revenue.” Bet they care now!

According to Wikipedia, in July 2011, Parsons sold approximately 70% of GoDaddy to a private equity consortium led by KKR & Co. L.P. and Silver Lake, and resigned his position as CEO.

Assuming that the Twitter incident happened prior to his resignation as a CEO, he most likely had the final say in the failed “joint venture” deal referred to in his message.

It’s important to remember that sometimes business opportunities arrive with a narrow window of implementation! 😀

    Bob has the intutiton to sense the direction industries he was in were going. Parson Technologies and Go Daddy both were ahead of the curve while he was in control. Now his PXG golf club line has me thinking it’s time for me to switch clubs.
