How did your performing arts background supercharge your entrepreneurship? First, [my performing arts background] made me realize the importance of the process. When I learn a new music piece, my performance sounds terrible. But because of the belief that things will get better with practice, I stick to it until it sounds perfect. The second area is teamwork. Getting multiple talented people to play together, each in their own instrument, taught me how to transition from the role of the player to the role of the conductor. How to support people to create something in which the sum is greater than the individual parts.
Favorite Performer: Gustavo Dudamel.
