We were growing fast and felt outside capital was needed to take us to the next level. It was the first time we sought money from an outside investor but thankfully we found the perfect one—our now close friend and partner, Todd Georgen. He gave us our big shot. He also taught me, through his belief in us, the incredible value of investing in others not just with time and words but with money. Because I’ve been the beneficiary of others’ belief in me, today I’m always looking for the next entrepreneur into whom I can invest my time and money.
