- introductions to / networking with my contacts (other entrepreneurs and business owners) -- I'm a connector

- open, honest, and kind communication from me (my 'door' is always open and I want you to feel successful and that you are learning and growing)
- regular feedback that's constructive
- freedom to find a good idea and run with it -- no micromanaging -- show me you are passionate and have good ideas and I will give you the space to try them out
