At dinner one evening, a close friend and entrepreneur asked me, “what CEO skills are you using the most now in your new role?” (image:istockphoto)

ARR, LTV, GTM, churn, positioning, competition, customer satisfaction, valuation. Over the past 18 years, I have been the founder and CEO of two companies where these metrics (and more) were important. I developed and honed my “superpowers” as a CEO to ensure each of these measures was going in the right direction. As a result, my previous ventures became leaders in their categories.

So, over a year ago when my close friend asked me to take the helm of a new portfolio company focused on renewable energy and the blockchain space, I was a bit skeptical.

I thought, “would my superpowers as a B2B CEO apply?”
