It's been an absolute pleasure working with Fabio. In particular, he's amazing in the following areas:
1. Great Judgement: focus on a few things that are critical at the current stage of the company and filter out the noise. Knowing what _not_ to work on is as important as what to work on. "To Focus on Everything is to Focus on Nothing!", Fabio is great at reminding us to focus on the bullseye.
2. Style: talking to Fabio always feels like you are collaborating and working together to solve problems. It's good to have a cheerleader, but you also want to have honest discussions with a high degree of transparency and directness.
3. Coaching and mentoring: Fabio is a great listener, always ask questions and pose challenges. He won't tell you "don't do this" but instead he'd tell you this is something he tried in the past and these were the issues.
Highly recommended for any entrepreneurs who are looking for a great advisor/mentor/board member!
