Pete The Planner quotes from this episode of Igniting Startups:
“I do think when it comes to being a leader within an organization in the times we’re in now, transparency is super important. I know sometimes leaders need to think that they can’t seem vulnerable or they have to be indestructible. But I think the best thing you can do good or bad is to go to your team.” — @PeteThePlanner on @PowderkegCo
“Does it make sense for a person to stop contributing to build their savings, stop investing to save versus, you know, get by with the level of savings you have and then invest for the future.” — @PeteThePlanner on @PowderkegCo
“It’s a community movement that decision is not driven by business. It’s driven by heart. And so I think in the tech world, it’s a community with a lot of heart that wants to serve people.” — @PeteThePlanner on @PowderkegCo
“There’s nothing wrong with a small pivot to make your product or service fit the moment.” — @PeteThePlanner on @PowderkegCo
