I have over 15 years of marketing and technology companies that focus on Small and Medium Businesses.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I think the best way to share how I like to work with other entrepreneurs is a quote from John Maxwell.
"Teamwork makes the dream work, but a vision becomes a nightmare when the leader has a big dream and a bad team." I am always looking for the best team - skill set, culture, and a sense of fun while building something big.
