Tell us about yourself
I’ve been a serial entrepreneur for over 25 years. I was on the founding team of Audible.com and have been involved with six other startups since then. I love to create and grow businesses that help people, and I love to manage teams of awesome people.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
Selling Audible to Amazon.com for $300 million.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
There are no days off—which is both exhilarating and a bit tiring.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
- Build a very strong team with different skill sets than your own.
- Have access to money, as things will cost much more than you expect, and things take a lot longer than you expect.
- Expect to work very hard and be prepared for unexpected twists and turns—both good and challenging.
