Bob Parsons – The Way I Work

Bob Parsons, founder and Executive Chairman of the Go Daddy group, is a self made
billionaire entrepreneur. Maybe this interests you either as an entrepreneur that would like to improve your
bottom line, or want to become an entrepreneur who makes a good income.

Work, is the key here. If you are looking for a formula to get quick rich, you are in the wrong
place. Bob Parsons is and has always been about putting in the time and effort needed
to succeed. A self taught programmer, Bob began his road to the top in 1984 with a
company he started- Parsons Technology. He began marketing and selling his
program, MoneyCounts, in his spare time and within three years quit his “day” job to
work on selling and supporting MoneyCounts, full-time.

Within seven years, Parsons Technology had grown to employ 1,000 people. In
1994 Bob was able to sell the company to Intuit for $64 million dollars. But, as
mentioned before, the key to success is hard work. Rather than take the money and
retire, Parsons kept working. Bob started Jomax technologies in 1997
and renamed it Go Daddy in 1999. By 2000, Go Daddy was an ICANN-accredited
domain name registrar. Currently comprised of 3 ICANN- accredited domain name
registrars, the Go Daddy family of companies is a huge success.

Bob will be the first to tell you, work is where it’s at. Just because your idea does not
take take off is no reason to give up. Any idea you have that is worth trying is worth
trying until you get it right. A single failure does not mean it is a bad idea it just means
you need to “tweak” things a bit, maybe change the way you are presenting your idea.

If you are working in your comfort zone, something you have done and done again,
without any real progress or change, then you are stagnant. You need to move
forward! [Read more…]
