About This Recipe
Is the customer always right? In her answer, the founder of Triple Orange, Caterina Van Der Kallen doesn’t say; instead she reveals an unshakeable belief in giving the customer the benefit of the doubt and inviting him or her to become your partner in success.
She shares an equally strong belief in the ability of entrepreneurs to solve problems, and the ability of women entrepreneurs to find answers by regarding issues and people from a uniquely feminine perspective.
Caterina elaborates on her conviction that creative thinking depends on allowing people the space to think differently, and not shutting down options with simple “yes” or “no” answers. She also challenges young entrepreneurs to apply their skills to adding value to existing enterprises, instead of thinking they have to solve a new problem.
