Getting things done even during times of stress is important. Having goals and key tasks is key. Sometimes we need to temporarily set our emotions aside or redirect them. It isn't really being a machine, just being human. #productivity

Although there is great appeal to the simplifying idea of the wartime and peacetime CEO, it is really a myth. Good startup CEOs need to manage though somewhat benign periods of growth and during times of fierce competition, chaos, and crisis. #startup #leadership

The skills that it takes to take a company from zero to the first dollar and first customer are different from what it takes to build a $100 million a year company with broad market reach and a global presence. Some member of your management team can make the transition and I'm a proponent of growing a company from within and promoting from within. Sometimes you may need to look outside as you grow and evolve your leadership team to continue to win. #growth #success #TuesdayThoughts

One of the most frustrating things for an investor is to see the infamous 'hockey stick' revenue growth curve in an investor presentation with no reasonable explanation of why it occurs and rationale for the timing. Of course VCs want an need to see explosive growth forecasts to get excited, but have some reasonable reasons for the how and why, and not just 'the miracle happens here', assuming you actually want to get funded. #startup #entrepreneur

One of the best sources of capital and strategic guidance in the companies that I ran was strategic corporate investors. If you learn how to properly engage this investor class, you can get more smart money investors around the table. I talk about some of the benefits and challenges of taking investment from corporate strategic investors in this article and video. #startup #innovation #business
