The areas I feel most confident in providing advice to an entrepreneur or startup company would be branding, revenue development, strategic planning, and culture creation. To me, these encompass the solid foundation of a company that can profoundly succeed and ultimately sell for a premium.
There is nothing like the entrepreneurial and startup journey. Having lived this journey (as I am now) and having written about the experiences as a columnist for a large daily newspaper, I feel I have a unique and honest understanding of how to start, build, grow, and ultimately exit an enterprise. I really dig having conversations with other entrepreneurs on how they succeeded and failed in building a new company.
The world is full of disruption at the moment, right? There is a monumental shift in technology, most prominently AI, that is going to change the fundamentals of every business. There are macro trends in world politics, global supply chains, currency, and education that are going to have unknown and profound effects on how we run our businesses. Financing growth (and even bankruptcy) are radically changing as we speak. There will be a new world rising like a phoenix from all this change. But how do we corral it to our benefit - that is the key question.
I've had a number of really cool challenges that have wobbled the core of my confidence as an executive. The most impactful decisions tend to leave an imprint on the human side of the business. Letting friends and colleagues go in tough times. Hiring promising new individuals in the good times. A changing of the guard, if you will. At Evergreen, I had to let our first CRO go after his inability to foster the right revenue path for the company. He was a good man, a team player, a part of our culture, and a friend. But the change had to be made and a new team put in place. A change that has fueled significant growth since then and created a new positive sales team dynamic.
