What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?

Try to never burn a bridge. While relationships can be complex, it’s best to nurture even the challenging ones because you never know where your boss, co-worker or employee will end up. A co-worker today could be a boss or potential investor down the road. Many of my former colleagues now lead companies that are vital to his success.
