WHEN STARTING A COMPANY YOU MUST...

Care deeply about what you are doing. Have the support of your friends and family. Enjoy the journey. However, the most important thing is to start, no matter how small or how slow.

 

THE BEST BUSINESS ADVICE I'VE EVER RECEIVED IS...

It's all about balance. You'll only be effective if you are able to take care of yourself and your relationships outside of work. Sleep, do the things you love and spend time with your loved ones!

 

NEVER UNDERESTIMATE...

The power and importance of your original vision and passion. Put things in place to constantly remind yourself of what inspired you.

 

I LOVE WHAT I DO BECAUSE...

I get to help people realize their potential in life, to equip people with the skills and resources to rewrite their futures. I also get to work with some of my best friends. It's awesome.

 

NEVER BE AFRAID OF...

Competition.

 

OUR GREATEST TALENT IS...

Being able to figure out what my talents aren't. But I'm still learning....

 

MY BIGGEST CHALLENGE IS...

Listening to "the best business advice I've received."

 

I OVERCOME THAT CHALLENGE BY...

Surfing before I go to work.

 

I HOPE TO ONE DAY...

Change the way people understand the role their business has to positively impact our world.
