Look around right now. What do you see? The walls of your home office, gray cubicle partitions or a roomful of caffeinated strangers? Now, ask yourself: how is my environment impacting my success?
Where you work, and with whom you surround yourself, counts. When I started my first software company 17 years ago, it was the era of the solo entrepreneur. Getting access to a community of supporters and mentors, finding capital and recruiting talent was as challenging as growing a plant in a tiny pot with no water or sunlight.
