9 Rules for Building Meaningful Relationships

Hey, it’s Monday here on StartupFlavor! That means we have another solid guest post for your enjoyment. Last week, we heard from Mick Hagen. Mick actually just announced today on Twitter that he is going to be launching a new startup soon. That’ll be cool to watch. His post last week, ‘The Fear of Failure’ was quite the motivator. Great to see him practice what he preached in that post. Go get em’ Mick!

This week we have the pleasure of hearing from Jon Giganti. Jon is the founder of 1440, a site dedicated to helping others achieve optimal performance in work and life. He has twelve years experience working in business development, primarily selling technology solutions to Fortune 500 companies. In his spare time, he’s the VP of Development for a Columbus-based non-profit, Creative Living, which provides independent living for adults with spinal cord injuries. Jon’s writing has been published on GTD Times, a popular site dedicated to all things GTD (Getting Things Done). A former division one college soccer player, Jon is also a CrossFit enthusiast and marathon runner.

So, without further adieu, enjoy the Monday guest post by Jon Giganti: 9 Rules for Building Meaningful Relationships.
