How adversity “made” Sidney Weinberg at Goldman Sachs.
This is a really great article on the power of adversity in Sidney Weinberg’s successful career as the head of Goldman Sachs for the better half of the last century. He was born in 1891, one of eleven children of Pincus Weinberg, a struggling Polish-born liquor wholesaler and bootlegger in Brooklyn. Its really a powerul story and summarized nicely in this article in the New Yorker Online. Enjoy!
