Ric Elias talks about his life and death adventure


Sometimes in our busy day to day lives we can lose track of what is really important, please check out this video.


Ric Elias had a front-row seat on Flight 1549, the plane that crash-landed in the Hudson River in New York in January 2009. What went through his mind as the doomed plane went down? At TED, he tells his story publicly for the first time.


Born in Puerto Rico, Ric Elias came to the United States for college knowing little English, as he writes in his on-line bio . So what did he do? “I adjusted my schedule and took only classes that dealt with numbers my entire first year,” he says. “I’d always been decent at math, and things like calculus and accounting were non-lingual. I was able to buy some time to improve my English skills.” His facility with numbers has led to a wide-ranging career in business and finance.

Elias is the CEO and co-founder of Red Ventures, a firm that helps large service companies acquire new customers online. He began his career in General Electric Co.’s Aerospace Division, then worked at the marketing services company CUC International (later known as Cendant). Prior to founding Red Ventures, Ric served as president of Spark Network Services, a promotion and data company held by Cendant.

“I’m a frustrated athlete,” says Elias. “To me, business is the Olympics for non-athletes. It comes down to loving competition; figuring out whom we should compete against and how to beat them.”

Have a great Weekend!!!!
