First Time CEOs

Midway through my first company (late 90’s), an investor told me “First time CEO’s tend to make three basic mistakes – 1) they don’t hire fast enough, 2) they don’t fire fast enough, and 3) they don’t manage their board well.”

It stuck with me.  A more expansive blog post on the topic to follow.

  1. Jeff, what’s the significance of the photo in your header? There must be a story there…

  2. I can relate to that. Look forward to the follow on post with some answers 🙂
