A lot of people in the field fail to acknowledge the pearls of wisdom:
“A wise man keeps his own counsel.”
Napoleon had Talleyrand who turned on him as Talleyrand believed:
“Regimes may fall and fail, but I do not.”
Now in the case of Jay-Z, he’s social and financial mobility is parallel to Napoleon but he maintains ahead of the curve, by having Sean Carter as his counsel. Sometimes it helps to split your personalities in order to separate your endeavours.
Sean Carter&Jay-Z (Talleyrand&Napoleon) = Success
Best of both worlds, a wise man keeps his own counsel.
