As a senior level executive, you can have a profound affect on everyone in your organization. I was reminded of that today when I was talking with a friend and colleague and told him that I had an offer for a partnership within a particular group. In our circles, this new partnership would be groundbreaking and very highly regarded.

My business partner, Jimmy Derocher, and I met at my freshman year of college at Whitworth University in Spokane, WA and instantly became great friends. Jimmy was a computer science and mathematical economics major. I was a business major, with experience with start-ups and three international internships. We had a lot of interests in common - ping pong, video games, technology, economics, politics, etc. Our most important similarity, though, was the high level of dedication we exhibited at all we put our minds to. We couldn’t rest until we had finished what we had started, in any endeavor. It is the intrinsic motivation to follow-through that makes Jimmy and I successful partners.
