Great series! Noto has his own style and interesting examples

Listened to first episode looking forward to the rest, great convo with Zach. Noto has a distinct style (loved his belay story cliffhanger I was sure the guy didn’t survive…) and Josh, VP of Corp Dev, is funny as usual. Great questions not wishy washy (like the Visa question) Lots of great insights that are actually relevant. Add to your favorites!

Who Dares Wins!

I can’t wait to listen to Anthony and his guests. A true leader from West Point, Goldman Sachs, Twitter and now SOFI…a great family man who once was a solid linebacker for West Point.
I don’t know Anthony well but we have many mutual friends.
But one story I will share is about the type of person he is….I met him 15 years ago on vacation in Cape Cod with mutual friends. Could easily tell he was a solid person, kind, considerate , humble and compassionate. Obviously very smart and successful but that’s not what I noticed. It was his kindness towards my family who he just met.
Fast forward a few years later and I send him a note asking him if he could review a business plan for new company I was starting. Without a moments hesitation he said yes, took the time to review it and give me constructive feedback.

That’s why I’m taking 10 minutes to write a review. I’m absolutely sure he has developed a culture at SOFI of team, importance of family, caring for one another and of course a culture of high lerfoyand winning.
Best of luck with Podcast and I look forward to listening,

Regards,

Tony Gibbons
