Notable book on team building & startups:

The Hard Thing about Hard Things by Ben Horowitz

If I had one motto to live by …

my former CRO who is Dutch would always tell us “Next Game” when we lamented anything – losing a deal, prospects gone dark, not enough pipeline to hit our numbers etc. It isn’t about what you lost but about what’s next, think ahead.

Fun fact:

I had a few side gigs as an elections official in Guatemala, Mexico, and Honduras. I’m not sure why but I always ended up in the towns where everyone carried guns.

Favorite interview question for clients:

Tell me something that happened here that wouldn’t happen anywhere else.
