I’ve been lucky.

Getting some grey hair after three startups in Seattle over a dozen years.

And I’ve met a bunch of smart people (founders, investors, leaders) who will let me ask them questions AND record it 🎤. They’ve been generous in sharing lessons that go behind the typical “we raised money” headline.

So I want to let you inside.

That’s why I’m starting this weekly email.

If you already like The Built in Seattle podcast, this is the bonus.

Over there you get 50-minutes of listening to Manny Medina, CEO at Outreach. Here you’ll get 2-minutes of reading on Manny’s unique idea about hiring (for example).
