Frequently asked questions

How would you define leadership?

I think leadership is inspiring others to share a vision and strive toward a common goal. Leaders inspire their teams.

Setting an example, communicating well, creating a healthy and productive work atmosphere, and teaching team ownership and accountability are all important. There are a lot of cliches about leading by example, which are true, but you have to get them excited about what it is you’re excited about and then it all happens naturally.

True leaders can inspire their teams to reach their maximum potential and innovation, so they can perform their best and achieve more than they thought possible.

What distinguishes my company from the competition is our solidarity-first mindset.

We're a start-up born with an unwavering urge for innovation and customer satisfaction. We were the first to create a number of tools that enable businesses to manage enterprise-level tech without the need for an IT department.

We believe in democratizing technology and leveling the playing field, allowing everyone, regardless of background or resources, to succeed.

What is Your mission how do you help people?

I'm on a mission to level the playing field by providing everyone the tools and resources that otherwise only Fortune 100 has access to.

My goal is to provide individuals and small businesses with the same opportunities as large corporations. I believe everyone, regardless of background or resources, should have an equal chance at success.

Do you have a favorite quote that you live by, and why?

Worrying about things you cannot control is pointless.

Concentrate on solving your problems. If it's beyond your control, then don't let it prevent you from improving the things you can do something about.
