Favorite books/websites/podcasts/speakers:

  • My early career was heavily influenced by Ron Baker/ Ed Kless (attending Firm of the Future events and listening to the Soul of Enterprise podcast) – solidifying my stance on value vs. billing, and being a trusted advisor to my firms.
  • The past year as I’ve stepped up to help build a team of newer BDMs at Intuit, I’ve taken a lot of inspiration from various Kobe Bryant interviews on how to elicit greatness from others, helping them achieve their maximum potential.
