How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

Clearly define primary responsibilities, and then collaborate on creative aspects.

Well far be it from me to say that he's not already. He loves every part of the startup process. For Scott, it's important to have his hands ... on every part of the process until he knows how it works. Then it's important to hand it off so he can take on the next stage of growth.
