“Being able to identify myself fully as an entrepreneur, transitioning from working in corporate America, has really helped because I fully embrace who I am now as an entrepreneur. That has helped me become a better CEO to build this company. Monica and the whole leadership team at Sprocket has been very helpful in building meaningful connections when we moved here.
