The best advice I’ve received

Mar 20, 2019 Published under Entrepreneurship and Management, KIND

“We can’t do everything. Let’s prioritize and do a few things really well.”

I’m so thankful for this advice and countless other lessons from KIND Snacks’ outgoing COO & President John Leahy over our 9 year partnership. John was a particularly good partner because he recognized that ideas and creativity are important – indeed vital – to the business, so he didn’t dismiss all my crazy ideas outright. He just helped filter the creativity and ensure discipline to identify one “wild” pursuit that we were equipped to handle at a time. Though John is retiring this year, I know his advice will endure at KIND. I can’t stop my brain from waking me at 3am with an idea, nor do I want to. What I do is surround myself with smart partners that can help me filter and operationalize them.
