Andrey Abramov, Tauro’s Senior Analyst, takes a unique approach to managing deals by reflecting on his birthday trip to Hawaii. Surfing goes hand in hand with managing deals in the sense that the best method to get better at something is by simply doing it, and not overthinking. You don’t have to know everything when beginning a deal, as you’ll trust your fundamental skill set that will take you step-by-step during the process. More specifically, deals behave as waves with the implication that they might be too big or small, but nonetheless they’re something you’re looking to take a chance on. Sometimes they don’t gain speed or crash too soon, but ultimately, you’ll get up to speed and catch that deal that gains traction and continues to move forward.
