Brian, thanks for being so open with what your biggest mistakes were. Also I love in this interview when you are so candid on the things you are working on now to be better.
If anyone in the comments want to share what you need to improve on that would be great to start a discussion.
One thing I need to work on is to not micromanage as much. I need to let people run with it and trust it will get done properly.
