Serial entrepreneur and active angel investor for more than 30 years.

  • Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.

    — Steve Jobs Co-Founder, Chairman and CEO, Apple
  • Visual design is often the polar opposite of engineering: trading hard edges for subjective decisions based on gut feelings and personal experiences. It’s messy, unpredictable, and notoriously hard to measure. The apparently erratic behavior of artists drives engineers bananas. Their decisions seem arbitrary and risk everything with no guaranteed benefit.

  • The critical ingredient is getting off your butt and doing something. It’s as simple as that. A lot of people have ideas, but there are few who decide to do something about them now. Not tomorrow. Not next week. But today. The true entrepreneur is a doer, not a dreamer.

    — Nolan Bushnell Entrepreneur
  • Ideas are easy. Implementation is hard.

    — Guy Kawasaki Alltop Co-Founder and Entrepreneur
  • Any time is a good time to start a company.

    — Ron Conway Noted Startup Investor, SV Angel
  • Chase the vision, not the money; the money will end up following you.

    — Tony Hsieh Zappos CEO
