“True MENTORSHIP is NOT a ONE-WAY Street. Great leaders must have two things: a vision of the world that does not yet exist and the ability to communicate that vision clearly. The true value of a leader in not measured by the work they do but the work they inspire others to do.” – Simon Sinek

How to calculate your total addressable market and make a great TAM slide for investors

I’ve seen hundreds of startup pitch decks in my time at Matrix, and have found total addressable market (TAM) slides to be among the most frequently mis-executed. I get the sense they are often included as a formality in an attempt to get VCs to check a mental box and continue on hearing about other… Powered by WPeMatico

How to be a Great CEO – from the CEO of Coach.me

There comes a point when your responsibilities outweigh your capacities.  As a CEO, this can be a hard day of reckoning. There’s a lot of ego involved when wearing the badge, “Chief.”   I recently sat down with Tony Stubblebine, the CEO of Coach.me to unpack what makes a great CEO. Tony founded Coach.me based on the simple idea that coaching is the secret weapon of elite performers. Having coached CEOs, as well as being a CEO himself…Tony knows what he’s talking about. He is the master of managing performance and personality.   Here’s what I learned from him about being a great CEO: Hire a “peer” (aka get a coach).   There’s nothing wrong with failing, but there’s also nothing wrong with NOT failing. “There’s no need to purposely fail, or get yourself into some crisis, just so you can learn from it,” says Tony. That’s why a great CEO will hire what Tony calls a “peer” (otherwise known as a coach). The job of a CEO can be a lonely job. Suddenly, you have no peers. Everybody else in the company has peers, but there’s only room for one at the top. Paradoxically, that can be pretty damn isolating.        That’s why Tony recommends you hire a “peer.” Peers support you. Peers give you feedback. Peers are just there for you when you need to rant about something.   But what’s even better, a hired peer (aka a great coach) will help you avoid failures and achieve results. Enlisting someone to take responsibility for your progress and success is THE secret weapon of all top performers.     The most successful people across all domains have coaches. Sports, business, health. Even Tony Robbins has a coach! I can speak from experience: hiring a coach changed my life. Don’t wait until you keep failing, until you’re in some crisis before you hire a coach. Be proactive. Do as a CEO should do.   Be the CEO that YOU are supposed to be. When Tony started Coach.me, he like most founders looked to investors to fund his vision.  During his meetings,…
