Yahoo Co-Founder Jerry Yang Recalls Meeting Alibaba Founder Jack Ma | Fortune

Jerry is such a cool dude.

I will never forget my lucky chance to meet him, filling in for another Yahoo exec who couldn’t attend the meeting, and suddenly finding myself on a Jerry special project. It never went anywhere but I got to have regular meetings with Jerry. That is all that mattered.

Love his honesty about luck as well – so many successful people like to pretend luck is not a factor. Right…

Yahoo Co-Founder Jerry Yang Recalls Meeting Alibaba Founder Jack Ma | Fortune:

“In retrospect, what are the chances” of having Ma assigned as his tour guide, Yang asked. “I’ve always thought of myself as the luckiest person in the world because of the timing of my investment in Alibaba.”
