In my pursuit of creating such software, I have been a founder of two companies. The decisions to do so have been some of the most frightening in my life, but there was no other way to ensure the opportunity to do things the right way: a culture of innovation and collaboration, a focus on service to the clients, a standard of excellence. Those decisions also afforded me unexpected opportunities to work with some of the most talented, dedicated professionals I’ve ever met. And so it is my experience that entrepreneurship is just that: a conduit for opportunity.
