What is the best piece of advice you have ever received?
“The best advice I ever received was in an article by Ben Horowitz called ‘Which Way Do You Run?’ In the article, he talks about facing your fears and worries head on. I believe this is great advice for anyone, but especially for optimistic founders and CEOs. If I know deep down that something is wrong, I force myself to confront that reality right away. It’s always uncomfortable in the moment but it’s a lot better than missing a threat or having a small issue linger and turn into something big.”
