Base plays from a startup CEO

Base Plays from a Startup CEO
Early Paubox Customer Map – July 2016

Earlier this month, I heard NFL legend Joe Montana speak at the JSV Book Club in San Francisco.

One of my key takeaways from that evening was Joe’s affinity for Base Plays.

Base Plays are the simple plays you learn early in the season. These are the same plays you go back to all the time.

I strongly felt we could incorporate Base Plays into Paubox, so we set about and compiled them.

For us, Base Plays are the simple tactics and habits that got us to where we are. If we get in a rut or hit a rough patch, we can go back to our Base Plays to get back on track.

For what it’s worth to startup founders out there, here are my base plays as CEO of Paubox.
