In business, ownership is everything.
I learned that lesson quickly when I worked as an Executive Assistant at a start up company.
In that role, I had inside access to sensitive data, like ownership percentages for the company founders, investors, and employees.
3 years ago today, my dad died. It was an awkward experience.
I found out on Facebook from a friend of his who tracked me down to offer his condolences – I didn’t even know my dad had passed.
I hadn’t heard from him in weeks. His phone had been shut off, which was a fairly normal occurrence.
My dad wrestled with a drug and alcohol addiction that had brought him in and out of my life since I was a kid. It had finally killed him.
That was how it ended, but that wasn’t the whole story.
