Network

That’s where your business lies. You can’t do it by yourself. You can have an amazing idea, but you need an amazing team and advisors around you. You need to wear a ton of hats, but you can’t wear them all. For Jeffrey, the IEEE has been his network.

Take Advice

Surround Yourself with people and listen to it. Sometimes it’s tough to listen to things that go against what you’re trying to do, but it’s good advice.

Always Be Optimistic

I don’t sleep that much, but I am doing something that I love. Be optimistic, but surround yourself with pessimist. It’s good to hear. You need people to give it to you straight. Early on we got feedback about a press kit. Those are the types of things that move you forward.
