    When do you see the forest? And when do you see the trees? Building a company to scale requires a delicate balance of macro and micro focus – and the skill to know where to focus when. Josh Silverman has built that skill in leadership roles at Evite, eBay, Skype, and now Etsy. What he’s learned: Success isn’t just about zooming in on the details or taking the long view – but about knowing when to switch between perspectives.

Dear Reid.

Dear Reid

Thank you for you’re show and for the start up of you. I dream to make a start up of my own or work in a tech company like LinkedIn. But I feel I don’t have the tools for doing non yet. I am 51 and I know what tech companies think about age. Also I am a father of two and husband, and no savings or time to make a start up by myself.
Anyway, I read you’re book and I listen to all you’re shows. In many ways you are helping me and I wanted to thank you for that.

Francisco Vergara from Chile.
