Congrats on making it through the first month of the year. I find it’s always challenging getting back into the rhythm of work. Everyone is so ambitious at the beginning of the year.

About 7 years ago I was working at a startup. I was one million percent sucked into the excitement of it all. So much so that we failed to truly validate our idea. As you can guess, this didn’t end very well. We raised money, got some users, and I learned a ton.

But then, then, someone pointed out to me a big sign that said, “it is a federal offense to take photos of your photos” … oops!
