“If you are a brand new engineer, as early as you can, start to learn about other disciplines and how they contribute because it will pay off later on in your career.”
“You’re not just writing. You’re thinking. You’re strategizing. You’re discovering in the world what’s happening and you’re helping people recognize the patterns in what they’re doing.”
“The most successful people that I’ve seen in my career have paid very close attention to relationships and how important they’re going to be in their career.”
“Out of all the skills that I think are helpful and relevant to being a good venture capitalist, financial expertise is the lowest.”
“Instead of asking Ben (Horowitz) to invest in my music business, I asked him to mentor me”
“Everyone really has to ask themselves ‘why would I even do an event?’ and answer the question very honestly.”
“We were inventing a new technology and building it in a multi-platform way… it took us a couple of years to get it right.“
“Everybody has unique talents and strengths, and it’s really important to embrace that diversity and reward people for their strengths.”
“As a manager, you are not simply telling people what to do, it’s a lot more nudging people. You have more authority, but very little ownership of your time.“
“Like many entrepreneurs you’re frustrated about something and you’re motivated to do something about it.”
“…helping a business really understand what its needs are and helping bring those needs to life.”
“There is more to any tech company’s story than just the software and I want to present the whole picture.”
