Although proud of my professional accomplishments, the true source of pride stems from knowing I did so without ever once abandoning or jeopardizing my ethics. Quote_down
  • About

I am a(n):


If you're an entrepreneur or corporate innovator, why?

After climbing to the top of the proverbial corporate ladder, it was time to face the next challenge: set and achieve new professional goals, while embracing my inherent entrepreneur spirit.

My favorite startups:

Craigslist, PlentyOfFish, Zamolution, AccidentOn95.com

What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation?

It really frustrates me when I see unethical and/or incompetent entrepreneurs taking advantage of clients.

I feel liberated that I can be completely open and honest with clients (and perspective clients). Not having someone looking over my shoulder, saying, "If the client wants to waste their money on a bad idea, who are we to stop them?"

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs/innovators make?

#1 Mistake - Lack of planning, i.e., business plan
#2 Mistake - Not understanding or acknowledging their own weaknesses
#3 Mistake - Not reinvesting profits back into the business

What are the top three lessons you've learned as an entrepreneur?

1. Do NOT sell to a prospective client; become a trusted adviser instead, and the sale will naturally follow.

2. If you firmly believe you will be successful, you will prove yourself right.

3. Find and hire the best talent. On the flip side, purge mediocrity.
