The Art of Growing Wise | Jerry Colonna

2019-07-16 | 🔗

In the late 1990s, Jerry Colonna co-founded the iconic Flatiron Partners with Fred Wilson. Flatiron became one of the world’s most successful, early-stage investment funds. Five years later, Jerry's work and life fell off a cliff and he found himself questioning whether he wanted to stay alive. Sage advice from a therapist sent him on a journey that would eventually lead him away from the industry, into Buddhism and his own personal reclamation. Stepping back into the light, he decided to devote his life to profound service and compassion, becoming one of the most sought-after coaches and advisors to founders of many of the fastest growing ventures in the world. He is now the CEO, and co-founder, of Reboot.io (http://www.reboot.io/book), a leadership development collective dedicated to the notion that better humans make better leaders. He's also the author of an incredible new book, Reboot (http://www.reboot.io/book), that not only takes you deep into his personal journey, but also redefines what it means to be a grown-up in a position of leadership in business and life.
