4 starting principles I live by to keep me grounded as a Founder.
Last week I spent my Friday hanging out with 50+ students in Boston at #BU and they put me on the hotseat!
They asked me about my biggest regrets, having non Black investors, balancing @blavity’s commitment to creators as we scale, and about the confidence challenges I’ve had had to transitioning from a founder to a CEO.
Here are some things I shared:
1. Always run choices through a lens of your personal mission and community impact
2. Accept that entrepreneurship is a journey. The inner spirit of innovation demands that you are never satisfied.
3. It’s about the people. My biggest strength is the people around me. My biggest potential risk is that I forget that.
4. Consistent execution + pursuit of excellent + smart hard work. That’s my personal equation of success.
Thank you BU and @nwborg for having me. #hustlesmart
