  • Network with different mix of people by being your best self. Get yourself in an ecosystem where you’ll be able to influence effectively.
  • Without vision, execution would not happen. Communicate your vision and strategy, simply but clearly, to your people.
  • There is no lifestyle-work balance. You just commit to what you say you would do and make it happen. Do more with less.
