    Ross Blankenship’s Business Philosophy

    • Tell people what they need to hear, not what they want to hear: you'll save them from extinction.
    • Quote by Ross Blankenship: "What we create is the sum total of that moment. What we leave behind is an eternity ahead."
    • Knowing your company's finances - profit and loss, balance sheets, and cash flow - is like knowing your lab results... your company's survival depends on strong financial acumen and awareness.
    • Your startup's idea is the battle. Startup execution is the war that you can win with the right people, process, product, financials, and traction to move your company along.
