I’d been mulling for months with little progress over a decision between staying at my current company where I had significant trust and influence as our Chief of Staff, or leaving to start a high-risk hardware company.
Time was running out and I kept thinking myself in circles, so I turned to Ann for help. With her incredible empathy and her rational framework for thinking through the decision, Ann was able to help me reflect on and prioritize what was absolutely important to me versus what was nice to have, and sussed out my open questions and fears. Then, she helped me structure a two week research process for answering my questions and assuaging my fears.
Within a month, I had not only made the decision with intellectual and emotional certainty, but also had clarity around the personal risks to watch out for in my new venture. Because of Ann, I now feel incredibly engaged and mission-driven every single day, and I’m looking forward to making a dent in the startup world!
