Take-home tips from the America’s Got Talent judge

1 EMULATE THE BEST In business, I’m similar to Rupert Murdoch or Donald Trump: They’re charming when they want to be, ruthless when they have to be.

2 EYE ON THE BALL Even with all the arguments, I was always focused on raising money.

3 USE YOUR ENEMY I was tired, but when Omarosa started banging on about my children, that fired me up. I’m going to tell them, “Boys, we had the last laugh.”
