Get to Know Alex
After 5 years of co-building a venture-backed multi-million dollar company, speaking around the country from Harvard to the Young Entrepreneurs convention as a thought leader on entrepreneurship and innovation, and advising startups, Monday's started to feel like Monday's...
When I took a step back, I found that I was in my company instead of being on top of it. If I had been on top of it, I would have realized that my purpose and pursuit of profit were imbalanced because I had forgotten what I was pursuing the profit for.
When I resigned (more on my crazy journey here), I was on a mission to prevent female entrepreneurs from getting to a place of imbalance. The reality is that YOU CAN lead a company with purpose at the forefront while pursuing profit. We all just need a little help along the way to not only get there but to stay on the right path as our companies evolve.
