Growth

Success means…

It is more about significance for me, than just personal success. What matters most is the impact you are having to make a meaningful difference in people’s lives.

What I learned from my mentors…

I’ve been fortunate to have many mentors. George Bell, my former boss at Upromise, has been a mentor for me ever since I started my career on the internet. He really taught me about “authentic boldness” – staying true to yourself while having the confidence to pursue your beliefs and passions.

How I deal with failure…

I don’t look at things as successes or failures. When something I’ve tried hasn’t gone as I expected, that’s an opportunity to learn or, as we say at Care.com, to test and iterate.

How I stay organized…

Evernote. It’s helped me tremendously.

Best piece of advice I have received…

Be intense on outcomes, but chill with people.

Lately, I’m inspired by…

The human instinct to help and support one another, whether that’s coming together after the passing of a loved one or aiding a global cause.
