At INBOUND last year I attended Brian Halligan’s talk on his near death snowmobile accident, reaching 1 billion ARR, his stepping down as CEO and how he realized there were other things outside of work worth living for.. So @BrianHalligan- thank you for the friendly reminder-and a second chance to reflect on WHAT IT MEANS TO LIVE A LIFE WELL LIVED
So, what did that mean for Market Veep? I’ll be honest- I went to the event and when my husband came home I said - “You should come on full time as the CFO, you’re working on Market Veep nights and weekends managing finances and legal, you also have a full time day job and you’re commuting an hour each way to work.” So from when I attended the event in October to the end of February- we took the leap, he left his job of almost 20 years to focus on growing with us full time. Family, living a well balanced life, and focusing on happiness was more important. So Brent congrats on 6 months, thank you for believing in our team and taking a chance on us, we’re so glad you are here, it was worth the leap!
AND SO I CHALLENGE YOU - WHAT WOULD YOU DO IF YOU COULD DO ANYTHING - NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE OR NOT?
BECAUSE YOU CAN DO ANYTHING YOU SET YOUR MIND TO WHEN YOU KEEP HAPPY AT THE FOREFRONT.
