About Vinh

What you'll get: An Extremely Lean/Agile/Practical Get-Shit-Done-That-Is-Worth-Doing Good Guy ===============
I'm extremely pragmatic so I can transition easily between big picture generalist and actionable nitty gritty focus to execute on what is needed rather than what is egocentric. I have done many things good enough to make a living including: analysing, designing, developing, product managing, and leading people. This includes award winning products/software, a million in ROI savings, and a product being evaluated for licensing. I'm a veteran in both startups and corporations so I know the necessary balance between chaos and control.

What I need: Lean Business Development/Sales/Developer/Marketing===================================
*Most important is that you want a business not a hobby. I have no interest in wasting my life away on something that nobody beyond you are interested in. This means Lean Startup/Customer Validation is absolute must.
*Where I'm weakest is sales/business development so you should be able to drum up/discover/have existing connections to early adopters/customers
*I can use help in marketing/programming assuming we got the business development angle covered.

Partnerships are professional marriages so we must share certain life values==========================
This means that we have rock solid integrity, social skills, and a healthy lifestyle. We don't have to be best friends but we should be able to put up with each other under extreme distress and uncertainty that comes with sharing a startup life.
This means we'll tell each other what we NEED to hear even if we don't want to hear it but we can still have laughs over drinks afterwards.
Finally, we love our health, family, and friends. We care and will support each other so that we maintain that balance. We will part ways when we are miserable people that will ruin the business sooner or later.
