Words That Changed My Life

“Stand before the people you fear and speak your mind—even if your voice shakes.” – Maggie Kuhn

I love these words because they’re a touching acknowledgment that it’s necessary to face fear, and therefore uncertainty, in order to effect change.

Why the World Needs Entrepreneurs

Leaders with an entrepreneurial mindset possess a critical, objective eye. They’re able to look at situations objectively in order to spot opportunities. I strongly believe that an entrepreneurial mindset can, and should, be applied to all areas of life—not just in business situations.

My Proudest Moments

I’ve had many opportunities to establish a number of Babson roles and programs, the large majority of which are still ongoing.

Babson Is

Babson is absolutely an “idea space” community. I spend a lot of time advising faculty, staff, and students on creative ways to accomplish things, both on and off campus. Babson is a community that is receptive to sharing a variety of ideas in a very collaborative environment. I never know who will walk through my door.

Entrepreneurship Is

I think of entrepreneurship as unbridled thought. It’s the willingness to entertain any idea, and then test it for viability.
