What is Empathy? Use it to Succeed!

When you show deep empathy toward others, their defensive energy goes down, and positive energy replaces it. That’s when you can get more creative in solving problems.

I think we all have empathy. We may not have enough courage to display it. Maya Angelou

Sendgrid is on the Positive Phil Podcast

SendGrid recently closed a $33 million Series D funding round and now boasts more than 350 employees and a brand new, state-of-the-art office in downtown Denver. However, SendGrid’s humble origins stem from three passionate founders, Isaac Saldana, Tim Jenkins, and Jose Lopez, who set out to solve the problem of email deliverability in 2009.

I had the opportunity to sit down with Isaac Saldana, one of SendGrid’s three co-founders, and the first CEO of the company, to discuss how the business was started. During our in-depth conversation, we discussed Isaac’s past as an entrepreneur, his motivations for starting SendGrid, finding initial product-market fit and the keys to SendGrid’s ultimate success. The story and glimpse into Saldana’s mindset that follows are sure to be invaluable for aspiring entrepreneurs and seasoned professionals alike.

Before There Was SendGrid…

For such a successful founder, Saldana is extraordinarily humble and attributes much of his success to luck.

“This thing is hard and it’s not going to be given, but consider that a lot of it is luck and just part of the process. So, if you never create a successful startup, it doesn’t mean anything. It just means you didn’t get as lucky as the other person.”
Isaac Saldana

While luck was certainly part of the equation, Saldana’s goal was to objectively identify why SendGrid’s founders were able to succeed in spite of the unfavorable odds facing startups. For Saldana, curiosity and persistence were instrumental in identifying a challenging, widespread problem and forming the right team to build a solution.

Consider that SendGrid was Saldana’s fourth startup. To put that into perspective, Saldana had worked on “failed” startups for six years before even beginning on SendGrid, which doesn’t sound lucky in hindsight. While all of those businesses failed from a financial standpoint, they provided invaluable experience that would lead to SendGrid’s success for a number of reasons.

Saldana developed meaningful working relationships in running startups with SendGrid co-founder Jose Lopez and SendGrid’s 5th employee, Elmer Thomas.
Saldana, Lopez, and Thomas learned from mistakes they had made in previous businesses.
Saldana encountered a recurring pain point of email deliverability in all of his previous startups, which would eventually drive him to found SendGrid. from www.sendgrid.com

clean water

Prabasi was appointed Chief Executive of WaterAid America in May 2014. Over the course of the last year, the organization worked with local partners to reach two million people with clean water, three million people with toilets and sanitation, and over eight million people with hygiene education. Under Sarina’s leadership, WaterAid has been recognized by GuideStar’sPhilanthropedia as the number one ranked international water and sanitation nonprofit.

In addition to her work at WaterAid, Prabasi and her husband Elias Gurmu co-founded Buunni Coffee in 2011, and opened Café Buunni in 2012, NYC’s first Ethiopian coffee shop, located in Washington Heights. The growing company blends Prabasi’s strong social sector experience with Gurmu’s entrepreneurial track record and is launching its second New York City location this year.

Prabasi was also recently named by both Fortune and Food & Wine magazines as one of the ‘Most Innovative Women in Food & Drink’. She was recognized, in part, because of her reputation as a trailblazer and mentor for women interested in pursuing top leadership positions while also balancing busy family lives. A proud mother of two young girls, Sarina has been praised for providing exceptional support and encouragement to the nearly 25% of WaterAid staff in the US who similarly have young children at home.

“Sarina’s excellence in the nonprofit sphere is matched only by her unparalleled understanding of how businesses and nonprofits can form a powerful force for good in New York City—and far beyond,” said Dan Singer, North America President for EMU Australia.

“EMU is proud to have teamed up with WaterAid to achieve a world where everyone, everywhere has clean water, toilets and hygiene, and we congratulate Sarina on being recognized among so many other influential New York leaders.”

Sold last company for $650M

Chad has served as Chief Executive Officer and one of the directors since the Company’s inception in 2014. Chad started his first Company out of his garage, Hieroglyphic Productions. Over the next 10 years, he built that company to become one of Disney’s largest vendors, producing branded content for shows like Hannah Montana, Wizards of Waverly Place and Take Two with Phineas & Ferb. He also directed many A-list celebrities including Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Ben Stiller, Muhammad Ali and Michael J. Fox.

In 2007, he became one of the early adopters on YouTube, launching an original show that quickly became one of the top comedy channels. He loved this new space for many reasons, but mostly because it leveled the playing field for people who simply wanted to create content without playing the “Hollywood” game. YouTube was also the place where he became fast friends with some of the top content creators.

In 2012, Hieroglyphic Productions was acquired by Maker Studios where Chad served as Vice President of Production, helping to build the company before it was sold two years later to Disney for $650 Million.

It’s Easy to Get Negative

“It’s easy to get negative because you get beat down. You go through a few disappointments and it’s easy to stay in that negative frame of mind. Choosing to be positive and having a grateful attitude is a whole cliche, but your attitude is going to determine how you’re going to live your life.” –  

VALUES BASED LEADERSHIP:How a True Leader Puts People, Organization, and Community First

Today, on the show we have JEFF THOMPSON, MD, who is an executive advisor and chief executive officer emeritus at Gundersen Health System, pediatrician, author, and speaker on values-based leadership.

Jeff’s experience in leadership is far-reaching, having led diverse teams, projects, and divisions, before holding multiple senior executive roles, including fourteen years as a CEO responsible for a staff of seven thousand, hundreds of thousands of patients, and a billion dollars of the community’s money within the Gundersen Health System. His long experience as intensive care pediatrician and senior executive has shown him over and over again how leading from one’s values has the power to affect long-term meaningful change.

During Dr. Thompson’s tenure, Gundersen Health System has been recognized across the country by independent healthcare ratings organizations for high-quality patient care. It has also earned the highest honors of Healthgrades America’s 50 Best AwardTM for 2012 through 2016 and the White House Champions of Change award in 2013.

Dr. Thompson is a founding member and past board chair of the Wisconsin Collaborative for Healthcare Quality and the La Crosse Medical Health Science Consortium. He also serves on boards for the ThedaCare Center for Healthcare Value, the Wisconsin Statewide Value Committee, About Health (chair), and Practice Greenhealth.

Dr. Thompson has authored and been featured in many articles, book chapters and abstracts on healthcare, leadership and sustainability topics. He is the author of Lead True: Live Your Values, Build Your People, Inspire Your Community, (Forbes Books, March 2017).

Dr. Thompson is board certified in Pediatric Critical Care, Neonatal and Perinatal Medicine, and Pediatrics. He has been caring for patients for over thirty-five years. He earned his medical degree from the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and completed his residency and fellowship at SUNY Upstate Medical University.

He resides in La Crosse, Wisconsin with his wife and in near proximity to his three grown children.

Consistently ranked in the top five percent of hospitals in the country for clinical quality care by independent healthcare ratings organizations, Gundersen relentlessly pursues improved health for patients, their families, and the communities it serves.

VALUES BASED LEADERSHIP
How a True Leader Puts People, Organization, and Community First
We all face countless decisions throughout our careers. The specific circumstances that call us to lead will be different, but the core dilemmas and ethical challenges are very similar. Faced with these challenges, each of us must decide if we will follow our ego-centered inclinations or lead for the good of everyone whose lives we touch? Will we endanger or impair those around us to satisfy our own self-interest, or will we lead in a manner that is true to our values?

In his inspiring book Lead True, Jeff Thompson, MD, has masterfully compiled stories from the business, healthcare, and education fields, illustrating how a diverse group of leaders has employed value-based leadership and succeeded. These case studies offer dynamic, living narratives that demonstrate ways in which a leader, fueled by personal values, can change people, organizations, and even entire industries.

What sets this book apart is the interweaving of the author’s personal leadership story in healthcare to the insights from start-ups, mid-career, and top-level leaders—people who have proven that values-driven leadership is not simply a noble idea but one that actually works in practice. The author artfully shows that the goal of leadership is not to move one individual ahead of all others. When you lead true, you can move everyone forward—people, organizations, and communities—finding the best route for all.

Why Entrepreneurs Fail to Raise Capital

www.positivestocks.com Positive Stocks- Why Entrepreneurs Fail to Raise Capital
The biggest battle you have to win when raising capital is the battle in your mind. This battle begins long before any shots are fired. As an entrepreneur, you must be willing to do whatever it takes to get the job done. First and foremost, you must unconditionally adopt the attitude of “failure is not an option.” Visualize, in detail, on a daily basis, your successful outcome. With that said, you’re going to be playing many roles in this process (from general to officer to infantryman). Many of your days will be spent doing the less than glamorous tasks of preparation and prospecting. Accept that now. If you want to be the leader of a Fortune 100 company some day, you have to start by paying your dues today—it’s simply the cost of success.

Reason #1 – Entrepreneurs Fail to Prepare and Plan Their Attack
Most entrepreneurs fail to raise capital because they don’t strategically plan their attack. They bring knives to gun fights and then wonder why they die in the process. Entrepreneurs’ passion, while wonderful in its purest form, makes them impetuous and impatient. They often skip the preparation phase completely and move right on to trying to find investors. If they are lucky enough to get anyone to listen to them, they are quickly and rudely shot down (most likely because they are fumbling around describing their idea; they don’t speak the investors’ language; and their corporate information is either poorly done or non-existent). By this point, the formerly passionate, budding entrepreneurs have most likely depleted their savings accounts, and their spouse, family and friends have started calling them a complete nutcase. It is no longer possible to get out of bed to face another day of rejection, so he or she stops prospecting for new investors and starts looking for a job. Not a very nice story, huh? Unfortunately, it is a true story that happens all the time.

Reason #2 – There Are More Entrepreneurs Than Lenders/Investors
It’s a fact of life that there are more entrepreneurs looking for capital than there are investors writing checks. If you don’t stand out and do it right, you’re dead. Your company must be unique, you must be better prepared and you must prove (as much as possible) that the market will buy your product or service by bringing in revenue. Then you must convince the investors by presenting a fabulous story, which gets their mind racing about the possibility of making serious money and opens their purse strings!

Reason #3 – Entrepreneurs Lack Strong Problem Solving Skills and Give Up Too Soon
This may be the most lethal obstacle of all: most entrepreneurs simply lack problem-solving skills (essentially survival skills) and they give up too soon! Remember, this is war and there are bullets and bombs going off everywhere and every day. Some days are worse than others, but there will always be problems—you can count on that! This path you have chosen is brutal. Therefore, if you’re going to win this capital-raising war, you have to learn some serious survival skills. You must learn how to stop the panic and overcome the problem by out-thinking your adversities. You must develop a system for coping with these issues that becomes a natural reflex.

Reason #4 – The Total Package Isn’t Sexy Enough and Your Story Stinks
The last reason entrepreneurs fail to raise capital is that their total package lacks the hooks or sexiness that gets investors excited. In other words, you didn’t sell them on your product or service, or maybe your management team is weak or your numbers don’t have enough profit margin! Something didn’t make the cut. Each investor is different, but in general there are certain criteria that each one seeks. Therefore, if you know what the investor wants, you must make sure you assemble a sexy package of your product or service that gets noticed! In addition, you have to be able to tell a story that gets investors sucked in and their adrenaline going. This narrative has to make sense and it must be sold with passion and conviction. You have to make investors see themselves as part of your entire story through to the end—the exit strategy. When you can do that, you’ll stand a great chance of raising your start-up capital.
