This CEO is out for blood

Here's a quote from a 2009 interview with Elizabeth Holmes that I've been saving, and that makes for a good lead-in to the article below:
"If you make a decision that you are going to make something work, and you commit yourself no matter what to figuring out how to do that; and you are absolutely not bothered by failure and making mistakes in the process of doing it, people can do a lot of things. And for me, this is what I wanted to do with my life...I feel like I'm doing what I'm born to do. When you have that kind of conviction, then you do whatever it takes to build value."
