The pinnacle of entrepreneurship is “Uberizing” your respective industry. Grab surplus-value and create a new business out of it. Airbnb is the Uber for sleeping. There’s an Uber for dog walking.

It would be almost impressive if it wasn’t so tragic. Her entrance into the race would be both detrimental and embarrassing.
