What was your 1st entrepreneurial endeavor?
I founded a small event management firm in DC focused on providing entertainment for large scale corporate events.
how has your personal brand helped your success?
Love the question. My father was an Air Force Captain in the Honor Guard at Arlington National Cemetery. He told me very early on that you actually only own one thing in your life, and that is your integrity. I pondered on this for years- and embraced it once I thought I understood it. Many years later I created TI in 2010. The org definitely reflects my values of creating societal change through tech. The givefirst ethos is as much a part of me as it is of the org. I didn't have a personal brand when I founded TI, but I am very much known as the face of TI and presuming your question surrounds our online personas..no, I was a nobody at first : )
What's the most exciting thing that happened this month?
We placed a very high level and well respected CTO with a mission driven org that we believe will change the world. We love working with B-corps and the like and we are particularly excited about this placement
