What made you decide to go into social media?

I saw how powerful it could be early on, and realized it would be the focal point of everything moving forward. I knew I needed to learn everything I could about it to add value to others!

Is there anyone who helped you get to where you are today?

Zeb Evans, CEO of ClickUp. He’s my best friend and also my toughest boss. He knew how to make me and the entire team the best employees we could be. Working under him had me surprised at what I could accomplish and learn daily. I’ll never be able to truly thank or repay him for that.

And Dan Fleyshman, CEO of Elevator Studio, has connected me to more people and taught me so many lessons not by telling me, but by showing me. He’s truly one of the real good guys and doesn’t really care about money — he cares about so much more. I couldn’t be more proud to have the opportunity to work with him.

What does it take to have a successful business?

A great team on the same mission. Everyone has to be pushing one another to be better each and every day!
