Before the company could diversify its portfolio, it faced financial uncertainties that immersed it into unwarranted debts that threatened its existence during its early years. At the time it was a sole proprietorship business, and Jeff Bezos incurred all the company’s losses. That did not deter him from achieving his dream of making the company one of the world’s biggest. The best trait that I believe Bezos has is his ability to read market trends and make business decisions that sustain the company in the future (Majed et al., 2018). This is an essential trait for any leader because failure to diversify portfolio depending on the market demands may make the company lose its relevance, and it may go under.
