Hello, I’m Ryan.
Principles, learned the hard way
Focus on building a product that people love, and everything else will follow. Chasing profit margins or evangelizing process without an amazing product offering is a waste of precious time.
Invest in people, be they your team, your customers, your co-workers, or yourself. It’s not easy at times, but this effort pays off for everyone involved over the long term. More importantly, failure to do so is the mark of immaturity and short-sidedness.
Your best work truly comes from that which you’re passionate about (and no, you can’t fake it). If you love something, you boost both the people and the product. And in turn, that passion grows. Win-win-win.
