ADVICE
“Focus first on building and enabling a great team. Great product and customers will follow.”

AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT

Luckiest Moment
“Accepting a cold-call from our soon-to-be investment partner, JMI. (We almost never take those calls.)”

Unluckiest Moment
“COVID-19.”

Roll-The-Dice Moment
“A few years ago we were presented a great opportunity, but it would require a major product pivot. It took us several years to work through it, but we ended up with a more complete and robust product in the end.”

Make Your Own Luck
“By doing really well at the boring stuff of growing a business — business processes, internal communications, training, etc.”

Fortune Cookie Forecast
“Current disruptions that are out of your control will melt away.”
