In this episode of Founders Fortitude, Yaniv Bernstein opens up about the challenges of not meeting growth targets for several months in a row. The emotional toll of standing in front of his team and admitting to these shortcomings was a low point. However, Yaniv shares his unique philosophy of “Caring a lot, but not too much,” which helped him and his team recalibrate and eventually start hitting their targets again.
