“Through a lot of deep contemplation, you have to go inside for that answer. You can’t get that answer outside. Only you know what is right for you: Your purpose, your ideas, your time frames, how all those things line up, that’s what’s in you,” he said.

“And then all of a sudden, I’m like, ‘This is it. That’s the trust.’ I learned to trust myself, because now I have the message, it’s time to go, it’s time to actually make that leap.”

Benioff stressed that the first step to founding a company is to look inside yourself and get a clear conviction that it’s the right timing. He also shared the five questions every aspiring business owner should to ask themselves before starting a business:

  • What is it that you really want?
  • What’s really important to you?
  • How are you going to get it?
  • What is preventing me from having it?
  • How will you know that you have it?
