Hamdi Ulukaya, Founder of Chobani

Hamdi Ulukaya, Founder of Chobani, commencement speech this last weekend at Boise State University, “…. The world you enter today is overrun by conventional wisdom – telling you how to think and how to act – what you can do and what you can’t do – who you are and who you can be. In my experience, conventional wisdom is almost totally and completely 100 percent WRONG! Rumi, who grew up where I grew up, once wrote: ‘conventional opinion is the ruin of soul.’ – guess when he wrote that? seven hundred years ago!… and he’s still right. Forget what conventional wisdom says. Don’t be led by the sound of other voices. Instead, listen to that voice inside. Trust your gut. Find the place where YOU belong.”
