Having impact is doing something that scales. It is beyond the one-to-one impact you can have as a person.
Leadership is finding a way to get a group of people to follow the mission with true enthusiasm.
People follow those whom they respect and trust.
Having a great vision is the basis for great leadership.
The information that you care the most about is about you and your friends.
A vision that scales is an integral part of great leadership.
