I'm very pleased to have joined the Editorial Board Advisory Board for the newly launched Software Business Magazine. This new publication, built on decades of experience at sister publication Channel Executive Magazine (formerly Business Solutions), fills a vital niche for the software and technology company owners & CEOs that we here at Corum work with every day. I am pleased to be bringing the collective centuries of experience here at Corum to this role, and you'll find Corum dealmakers contributing their own articles as well.

As part of the role, I'll be periodically contributing the the Ask the Board feature. The current issue's question is "What One Metric Keeps You Up At Night, Why, And What Is Your Company Doing About It?" The numbers that keep us up here are our clients numbers, and there's one item in particular that is always at the forefront of our mind. What is it? You'll have to read the article to find out, as well as more excellent advice from other board members.
