Sam Davidson's blog

Every Tuesday, I write.

I share an idea I’ve come up with, a struggle I’m wrestling with, a puzzle I’m turning over in my head, or a story that I think the world needs to hear. You can sign up to get these emailed to you each Tuesday morning by clicking here

On Thursdays, I write at Batch about a business idea or concept, usually through the lens of my day-to-day work as co-founder and CEO or from the viewpoint and lessons learned of our purveyors. Follow along here

On LinkedIn and Twitter I often toss out quick thoughts and ideas that aren’t ready for longer posts just yet or something that I’m seeking feedback on. 

If you'd like to get more ideas like these sent to you each day, it's easy: sign up here.


 

The Power of Support

Blame Hollywood for giving support so many accolades. 

Surely the act of supporting someone or some idea is worthy of recognition. But perhaps support doesn't need its own highlight. Perhaps the notion of support needs to be elevated to the point where it is on par with any other function. 

It's like when we call someone a "student" leader (leadership is leadership) or when someone is named a "top female executive" (executives should be judged by talent, not segregated by gender).  

Let's get to a place where someone's support role is held in as high esteem as the leader, the manager, the entrepreneur, or the artist. Work is work, help is help, and success is success.
