156 — Ry Walker

Podcast Summary:

Ry and his team at Astronomer have goals as big as the sky. You know all that growing data that you are having a hard time wrangling? Well, Ry co-founded the company that is helping you move that data to where it is needed and when it is needed so you can make better sense of it all. It’s a harrowing task, but he and his team have made enormous progress. And, along the way, Ry has learned more and more about himself as a leader. He gets personal about:

  1. Leveraging his sales strengths by getting Monthly Recurring Revenue (MRR) right from the start.
  2. How he and his COO divide the responsibilities of leadership.
  3. How he looks at maintaining a good relationship with his board.

Down to earth, but reaching for the stars. That’s how I sum up this interview with the fast-growth Co-founding CEO of Astronomer, Ry Walker.

Do you need quality design work, fast? When you are growing your startup, you and your team will eventually need designs for logos, business cards, t-shirts, banners, social posts, etc. I personally recommend DesignCrowd the next time you need some design work. We used this amazing crowdsourcing platform to help us design our logo for “Trail Team 10.” Not only was it easy, but it was a great experience collaborating with creative designers around the world. We received over 100 quality designs to choose from. Check it out and let me know what you think.
