“I’m the richest guy you ever met in your life,” Chris Burns, founder of Intern U said today. “I have four great kids and a great wife. I just might measure wealth differently than you do.”
Burns’ philosophy of the 3 C’s — Take care of the Customer, take care of the Company, and the Cash will come, was at the core his message. “At the end of the day, it’s about the line at your funeral not about how much money you made.” 
But with Intern U already established at 86 universities and colleges and with a commitment to innovation and adaptation, it seems Burns is doing okay.
He insists that it isn’t about the paycheck, though. “You have to make sure that you are making a difference in the world.”
Burns does offer some advice to business owners and startups: “If you have a good idea, don’t bake it too much. At Intern U, we put all the ingredients together, but before we put it in the oven we go to clients and say, “would you buy this?” If they say yes, then we run with it. But first, we let our clients put their fingerprints on it. And then they enjoy the meal even more.”
