I love Jason Cohen's blog.? To start the new year, he does not disappoint with this blog post.
?You must be so proud of what you created? ? the reflexive conclusion delivered by visitors to our building at WP Engine, struck by a beautiful place teeming with energy and activity, coming upon the little office of the founder.
?What we created,? I always respond. It?s not false humility. I didn?t create this. There are over four hundred people creating it even as we speak. I haven?t even been the CEO for three and a half years.
This is exactly how I feel about BP3 - starting it might have required Lance and I to step out and do it. But building it - that's Flournoy and every person we've hired since.? It's uncomfortable when someone assigns too much credit to me, personally.? Because I know how much of this is the team.?
One of the most gratifying elements of this journey has been how much more I get out of seeing the team succeed than I ever did for my own success, and how much I enjoy trying to create the conditions that support the team.?
