I've spent my career in commercial real estate, helping companies (and then specifically technology companies, VC's and startups) lease office & industrial space. I've always been lucky to have great people around me and have an easy time making friends. I pride myself on treating people with respect and work hard on trying to be a good listener. Sales has been a great avenue for me to be successful financially and the commercial real estate business has given me an opportunity to fend for myself and manage others, both internally and client-facing. I love sports and played basketball from a really young age. It helped me learn leadership and how to work with others. More importantly, it helped me understand the meaning & strength of being on a team.
