  • posted Teaching and teachers play an important role in molding anyone's character. I am fortunate to have great teachers and mentors who guide me. There is a malaise that is going around that since there is free access to information that it can lead to knowledge and wisdom without the role of a teacher or mentor. The truth could not be far from it. Information is not knowledge and knowledge does not automatically lead to wisdom. If you don't have a mentor get one, you will be happy you did.

  • posted Hilarious talk by Ben Chestnut, the founder and CEO of MailChimp on building a creative team and Leadership. The secret ironically is not that obvious.
  • posted Building great products and companies starts with empathy for your first customer or user. If you cannot build that emotional connection to the one there is no way you are going to grow your customer to millions. The road to million customers starts with the 1. Kevin Hale the founder of Wufoo and Partner at Y Combinator gave the 7th lecture, IMHO this was by far the best lecture in the series. Watch it, learn it, do it... you can thank me later!
