“Crazy John” Ilhan Dead at 42

John Ilhan RIP Crazy John’s founder John Ilhan dead at 42. The Aussie mobile phone entrepreneur was estimated by BRW to be worth $310 million.

I’m stunned at the moment, the news reports say he died of an apparent heart attack while walking this morning. Looking at his recent philanthropic efforts I think he died too soon.

It reinforced for me that work/life balance is important. Even when business gets crazy, it’s important to take time to enjoy the journey.
