What Others Say
“I had the pleasure of meeting a fantastic guy, David Bishop, who gave a fantastic talk on leadership at #pioneers18 on how to maintain your mental health through this journey of building a business. We are all so driven to be the best tech, raising the most money, that we don’t stop to calibrate our current existence. You won’t get there if you don’t focus on the small things: Building a great culture for your team, steadying your mind so you can execute efficiently, being a positive leader. The truth is that 90% won’t make it. This sh** is hard and takes a lot of mental endurance. Be kind to yourself, be grateful and humble, feed your emotional intelligence, and be in a position to give. Without you, there is nothing.”
