Josh Zywien, the CMO of Paradox, made a great hire recently, and I sent him a note telling him so. I like to do that. He knows he made a great hire, but it’s always nice to get a note confirming your belief! If you don’t know Josh, you should give me a follow, he’s one of the good guys in our industry.
Josh responded to my note with a statement I wanted to share because it’s profound:
I like to hire people who have a ‘high give-a-damn’!
I absolutely love that and told him I was stealing it!
