Here's a running list of my mistakes at CB Insights. They span all facets of building a company – everything from HR to culture to product to sales to operations to admin.
We’re having a pretty great year at CB Insights – revenue is up, the team is growing and we’re executing at a high level.
But things weren’t always good.
We’ve had lean times and made many, many mistakes. Most were the result of things I did (or didn’t do) and I’ve been keeping a list of my screw-ups as a reminder to myself.
With that in mind, and as the new year approaches, I thought I’d share my list more publicly as a reminder to myself and as a public way for the team to keep me honest. For other entrepreneurs, I hope this list is useful, provides a laugh, or lets you see that you’re not the only one.
As you’ll see, my screw-ups span all facets of building a company – everything from HR to culture to product to sales to operations to admin. I am what you might call “multi-talented.”
So here they are in no particular order, bucketed by category. You’ll notice that some of these screw-ups sorta contradict each other. Yup – building a company is messy. Read more: https://www.cbinsights.com/blog/startup-ceo-screwups/
