Believes you need to disrupt yourself in order to improve your life.

Thinks sometimes we need to ditch a dream.

“Disrupting yourself is critical to avoiding stagnation.”

Believes the dirty little secret of innovative cultures is that some byproducts are inhibitory to growth—and any organization that is not prepared to handle these toxins quickly puts itself at risk of contamination and failure.

Thinks today’s teens are more entrepreneurial because they’re getting a completely different work experience than previous generations did.

“We frequently applaud failure in theory, but the dirty little secret is that it makes all of us feel at least a little ashamed.”

Believes investing in women isn’t a cause and that we’re on the cusp of a secular shift.

Thinks successful entrepreneurs share 7 traits including grit, storytelling ability, and resourcefulness.
