“I don’t really come from an entrepreneurial family. Both of my parents are physicians.
But when I was in grad school, I took a class on entrepreneurship, and was really captivated by the professor's story and the way he would talk about the adventure that surrounds building a company. My biggest fear had always been to have a very mundane job, so I was really drawn to how exciting starting my own company could be. That class ignited a fire in me."
"When we started Mobtown, I realized quickly that I had to learn a little bit about all of the aspects of business and really dive in. Luckily, I’ve always loved to learn. Growing up, I was that kid playing soccer and tennis, but I was also that kid in the jazz band and the president of the chess club. I think that love of learning translates really well to running a business.
I also think it’s important to acknowledge that it’s not just the three of us doing this — there are so many people around us who have helped us think outside the box and get to where we are today."
“I’ve found that it’s easier to appreciate what we’ve accomplished when we take a few moments to step away. When you're entrenched in your own business, it’s very difficult to appreciate how far you’ve come. You're just trying to fight the fire of that day.”
