What piece of advice would you give to entrepreneurs?
The entrepreneurial journey can be gratifying and rewarding. It can also be hard and lonely. For me, staying balanced and energized is a key part of the challenge of being a successful leader. Knowing what keeps you sane—in my case, spending time with my kids and getting plenty of exercises—and making time for these activities in the face of the demands of the job are keys to success and happiness.
