I see its a long lost thread, although I heard that sentence for the first time, so I found this topic.
I personally agree with the statement.
It is nearly impossible to become very successful, especially in business on your own. I doubt there are many huge business, where only one person
One person may have had the idea, he may have founded the company and took decisions, although he did not do it alone. Stating the for example Steve
Jobs or Henry Ford did it alone, is insulting to any of the past and current workers in Ford or Apple. Every business is a collective of individuals
and every individual work gives something to the business, so if any CEO or founder would claim they did it on their own, it simply shows their ego
and lack of gratitude to every worker, even the cleaner & factory worker who made their effort, which created the final product, which got to the
people. Only a one-man company can claim that they built their business alone, although even for them their family, friends and teachers gave some
influence in their life, which created who they are.
