I disagree. Changing the profession, or blazing a new brand trail can change
the world. Revolutionary changes tend to come from outies, not innies. Well,
I guess that depends on your definition of outtie versus innie, is the
leader of a revolutionary company an outie or innie? Henry Ford's assembly
line changed the world, and he was the brand, he didn't work for the brand.

How about being the founder of a startup that takes them out, a la Brin &
Page? It's relative to whether you get more satisfaction from raising a
company from the ashes or building one from the ground up. Neither path is
inherently more revolutionary than the other.
