Over the course of my career, I've worked both in small startups, fast-growing ones, failed ones and large corporates.
I've been both an entrepreneur and an employee.
I've been a founder and an investor.
There is one fundamental truth that remains constant:
Behind all the corporate jargon, all the hierarchies, and all the business-speak, you are always dealing with people.
So stay real. Be real.
We are all emotional creatures.
Never forget that.
Never underestimate the importance of emotional intelligence.
