The 2000 dot com bubble and the 2008 financial bubble should make you aware of the fact there is no security even in a big company.

Winning Season Two of The Apprentice gave Kelly Perdew an opportunity to learn from tycoon businessman Donald Trump while working in Trump Tower for a year. The author of "TAKE COMMAND: 10 Leadership Principles I Learned in the Military and Put to Work for Donald Trump" has a candid conversation about how these principles have led to his success as an entrepreneur and as a person.

He says, "All things being equal, if you can avoid a heaping amount of debt, which forces you to make certain decisions, that's great. Sometimes that means through avoiding debt by getting scholarships and sometimes debt comes from school or 'the school of life.'"

Perdew discusses how he used his life lessons as an Army officer, law school and business school graduate, and a Donald Trump Apprentice to become a very successful entrepreneur. He said, "The 2000 dot com bubble and the 2008 financial bubble should make you aware of the fact there is no security even in a big company." Perdew believes in "Optionality," which he defines as always keeping your options open.
