Building Next

Heart. Authenticity. Purpose. Intention.
Embodying/evangelizing the above to build a better next.

About Me

I’ve built products and scaled businesses over the past 18 years, in semiconductors, software, as well as venture capital. Each was an amazing learning experience and taught me much about building winning products and businesses.

But there was a dark side. Looking back, I spent a lot of time worried about survival, constantly in fight or flight mode, as did most of my peers and companies/competitors.

It's now time for each of us to step out of the old paradigm of surviving to thriving. I write and advise businesses on what this means.

Writing & Philosophy

I write on Substack about heart consciousness and tapping in to create beauty/magic in life, career, business and the world.

Philosophy. Business is based on survival of the fittest, ensuring paranoid leaders/companies starve for scale, and compete in fight or flight mode for scarce resources/attention. No wonder most end up peddling undifferentiated and commoditized products/services.

I truly believe the new paradigm for building successful and thriving businesses is heart-led. But this isn’t some idealistic philosophy where it’s all peaches and cream.

The key elements are:
Heart (courage to feel and listen to your gut)Shadow (facing our demons and programmed beliefs)Purpose (having an authentic Why)Intent (having a conscious Where).
