Bulldozing A Doubter

David Collischon, Filofax entrepreneur – obituary

A modest and good-humoured man, Collischon liked to recall that in the early days of Filofax he asked his bank manager for support on the basis that sales might one day reach £250,000 – only to be told he was far too ambitious. Having created a mutimillion-pound business, he was later able to buy the bank manager’s house, knock it down and build a new home on the site to his own design.

Boldfaced emphasis added by me.

Go read the obit. He led a varied life.

And I like what he did with that bank manager’s house!

    Sounds like something Steve Jobs would have done.
