I love understanding founder-market fit.
Learning why founders are obsessed with solving a particular problem and what gives them that unique edge fascinates me. Building a big business is a long and difficult journey; understanding how and why it began can help inform some of the most crucial decisions.
Seize the day.
Every day is a new day and I’m constantly striving to be a better version of myself. Time is a precious commodity and a finite resource – might as well make the most of it!
Small talk cheat sheet:
Sports (specifically the Pittsburgh Steelers and why they are the greatest franchise in NFL history), cooking, and I always appreciate a good recommendation—documentaries, books, tv shows, movies, podcasts.
This is a great business for curious people.
You get to meet with passionate and incredibly knowledgeable people every day who are pushing the envelope with new ideas and ways of thinking. There’s always a new rabbit hole to go down if you want to keep learning.
