In everything I do in life people tend to call me an extremist. I just love taking risks and thinking & dreaming B.I.G
B – Books that I read
I – Individuals I met & continue to meet along life’s journey
G – Goals that I set for Myself
Thinking B.I.G., will lead you to doing B.I.G & will help you along the road to Success. OCEY PHILLIPS
I feel fortunate to be on a professional journey that actually pays me to do what I love. This journey is probably best summarized by stating that I:
I’m an aspiring CEO and CTO with a deep understanding of the levers of revenue growth, from picking up the phone to closing a deal, to full go to market strategies, to building amazing teams, I’ve seen it all, and I’m always pushing my teams to invent new ways to move the needle.
My experience as a Operations manager, Strategist, and executive, helps me collaborate with CIO’s and CTO’s of companies with software experience that need on-time, disciplined software development. I also give executives more flexibility by integrating architects, developers, business analysts and project managers with their existing teams–enabling faster software creation and advancing their tech initiatives.
Personally implemented the following:
• A broad range of development expertise
• Custom software development, from design to development to support.
• Technology marketing strategy and execution.
• Business process automation strategies, as well as custom software development to translate the strategy into time- and money-saving solutions.
Throughout my career, I have applied the same skill set to companies at various stages of development – identifying an untapped market, building a world-class team, and executing a clear strategic plan.

I LOVE TO STATE THAT I:
…surround myself with world class talent. I aspire to join, recruit, encourage, develop, and invest in exceptional people.
…keep myself in the center of the the most positively disruptive technologies at any given time.
…am energized by building great businesses and helping people improve their lives.
What the next decades will bring is limited only by ideas, dreams, and the ability to successfully execute at scale.

What’s the takeaway? When designing an app, service, or new technology offering, be sure to invest the time to understand the human aspect first. Understand your target users as people and not just consumers. Take the time to understand their motivations, their goals, their context, and their comfort with technology.
very tech industry blog, newsletter, and weekly update email is packed full of articles about digital transformation: why you should be doing it, how to be successful at it, and statistics demonstrating the haves and have-nots of digital nirvana. But very few of these articles discuss the factors that led up to this revolution or those driving the need for companies to change. Perhaps a brief look at history—very recent history, but history nonetheless—will spur onlookers to jump into the game.
Lack of funding, finances our Creativity & Resourcefulness:
Often times I have heard people say “If I only have money I would start this business” & I myself have been guilty of that in the past. I would sit down and wish I had won the lottery so I can then make my dreams come through. Over time things changed from reading books and listening to mentors, thought me that most of the people who succeed work harder and more importantly out think others. “Disrupt You” By Jay Samit is one of the most influential books I have ever read.Let me share with you some insight on how to adjust your lens and grow your business;
OPM (Other People’s Money)
We often limit ourselves to think that what we want is far-fetched and out of our reach, but more times what we want exist right outside of our comfort zones. If we just think outside of our regular thought patterns we would find that there are answers within our grasp.
Entrepreneurs tend to look at the glass half empty, instead of leveraging their networks & surroundings. Technology has now turned the world into a global village, and as neighbours we all have something to share with each other. Start thinking about what you have to leverage from geographical location – to Networks & additional value and think about how your resources can solve a problem for someone else.
Expand your mind a bit, don’t just think what problem your business solves, think about the surrounding factors & problems and how they can affect other people and leverage that. We live in an era of endless innovation don’t let money keep you back from chasing your dreams.Ocey Phillips
