The thing I get most excited about in business is the opportunity to build rockets and to see exactly how far and how high they can go.
Of course, I’m not talking about actual rocket ships — I’m referring to any new idea, product or company that you build from the ground up that will disrupt an established market, or move an existing player into a completely new market category.
Building a business or product that’s designed to disrupt on that level is all-consuming — it’s inspiring, exciting, challenging and daunting, all at the same time, and that’s what I love about it.
When you’re setting out to make your vision a reality, it helps to recognize that the path ahead won’t always be easy and there will inevitably be highs and lows along the way. You need to ensure you have the right team around you — a team with the skills and mindset to flourish during the good times, and to persevere and find a way through the hard times.
You need a team that covers all bases, with the right mix of people to ensure you can keep moving forward in any environment. That to me is the essence of a resilient team.
