Introduction
After college and eager to please, I went to work for IBM.  But I quickly discovered that the big company bureaucracy wasn’t a great match for my ambitions.  Luckily I made some great friends, who were much smarter than me, and we left IBM in 1995 to start our own company, Ganymede Software.  

Over the course of the next 5 years, we raised money from venture capitalists, grew to over 100 people, and sold the company in early 2000 by NetIQ.

I am writing about starting and building companies at An Entrepreneurial Life.

I had the good fortune of interviewing my friend Tom Kemp, the CEO of Centrify, about his experience in growing the company to 400 people over the last 9 years.

A better model for primary care?  I think so!
What's the thing that patients appreciate the most about my practice? Accessibility. If they need me, they can reach me.
