One of the keys to my success so far has been surrounding myself with people who are smarter than me. I’m serious. I did this with my business partner Giancarlo. He fills in all my blind spots and helps me avoid pitfalls. I would be nowhere today had I not surrounded myself with smart, creative, talented people. They all enhance the quality and integrity of our (mine and Giancarlo’s) company. There’s only one catch: To recruit this kind of support, you need to check your ego at the door and cultivate a true team mentality by being willing to listen to and collaborate with others.
