My passion is building companies that solve pervasive problems in big markets. The driving force behind the companies I build is centered around the mission to make a positive impact on people's lives. We all can leave our mark by helping others succeed.

Fuel freedom

 

The American Dream is centered around freedom. The freedom that gives the opportunity for prosperity and success to anyone, anywhere, no matter their circumstance. I'm grateful to the entrepreneurs who chase their seemingly impossible dreams to create a positive impact on my life and the lives of millions around the world. Each day I'm driven to follow in their foot steps and fuel freedom.

Make a positive impact

 

There is no better feeling then building a product or service that solves a real problem and makes a positive impact on someone's life. I'm passionate about helping the 28 million small business owners and entrepreneurs of the United States get the right capital at the right time to grow and build their businesses. The economy and strength of countries around the world is built on the success of small business and entrepreneurs.

Build strong leaders

 

The key to building a successful business is all about building strong leaders and teams. Leaders and teams that are driven to recognize and solve problems quickly to achieve big results. Success occurs when you align the talents and the passions of each employee. If the vision is clear and the goals aligned, get out of their way and let them own it. You'll have engaged employees who love their jobs. High self worth equals high productivity. High productivity equals hyper success. One of my greatest rewards is seeing individuals take on challenges, overcome them, and grow into the future leaders of our company.

Over the past decade, I have had the opportunity to build companies from idea phase to industry leaders. It's humbling and builds character, heart, and patience. My favorite part of building a successful start up is watching the pieces fall into place. All success comes from teamwork and alignment around a common goal to make life better for others. It's inspiring to watch as determination remove roadblocks, hard work creates opportunities, and passion makes the impossible, possible. The right team is the key to success.

Disrupt the status quo

 

Disrupt the status quo. I'm passionate about using technology to solve pervasive problems that make the world a better place. Technology is constantly moving like a wave in the ocean. I love the challenge of having to be constantly out in front of the wave. Technology is never stagnate, it evolves daily. The daily evolution allows for constant disruption and success if you are tuned into the market and real problem.

SaaS pioneer

 

In 2007, there was a big movement occurring around the Software as a Service (SaaS) deployment model. For us at AtTask, it was an exciting time be a technology company offering this new innovate software experience. At first, many companies where reluctant to adopt a software model that wasn't hosted on-premises with their servers and their IT infrastructure. This didn't stop us, we continued to build value with our product and businesses from around world joined us and bought our product. Now, SaaS, the cloud, has gone mainstream as a viable solution to software deployment. What a journey.

 
 
 


Connect the Dots

 
“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. Because believing that the dots will connect down the road will give you the confidence to follow your heart even when it leads you off the well worn path; and that will make all the difference.”
— Steve Jobs
