"We were coming from different angles -- I had strong reservations about doing things I was not excited about (eg: getting the word out about Rockstor in every possible way). But Vinima shined the light on the importance of doing that. There was a technical gap between us. Though this was an obstacle, I think it pointed out to so many flaws on the tech side of Rockstor.
Vinima brought a fresh perspective and bridged the gap between obvious strategic things example: spread the word on forums that are low hanging fruit, and harder risky strategic things as an example: talks and ad-buys and other mainstream marketing ideas that I was not well informed about. I found that Vinima was an out of the box thinker when it came to Rockstor, whereas I was very much in the box. This made me pause and reconsider some of my assumptions. Working with Vinima, I realized that certain aspects of business development are same across different kinds of businesses,
Vinima has strong opinions about different choices and she voiced them well and that made me think differently. She took challenges from my arguments gracefully -- I vaguely remember thinking something like -- but what she says doesn't apply to Rockstor, only to be challenged more and come up with a better perspective. I respected her ideas more over time.
Having a passionate and a long-term interest in applying her talents and skills, not minding discomfort, adversity, growing as a result and continuing the virtuous cycle. I think this is also one of the important reasons I'd recommend her."
