How do you define “success”? For me personally success is balance, enjoying what you do and the ability to make an impact in the lives of others. In business, success is defined by clarity around measurable objectives that everyone can understand and self-assess.
What is it about the gaming industry that makes it a good industry?
The gaming industry is excitement, entertainment and experiences. We are in the business of “fun.”
