My Biggest Lesson

A company is about a whole group of people, and that group of people—your team—is what makes everything. At the end of the day, you might have the vision that they’re aiming towards, but without them, you wouldn’t be able to do it. So you’re really just helping your team get better and giving them the resources they might need.
