I meet founders (and investors) who think raising money de-risks a company And I meet founders (and investors) who think raising money re-risks a company I generally think latter is healthier, because it respects the journey ahead & ROI you need to create on each dollar spent
It shifts risks from “running out of money” to “literally everything else” for a few months ⏱

currently debating whether or not I should completely rewire my mid-century home to include neutral wires everywhere, as I'm tired of missing out on all of the cooler smart home tech like this https://www.theverge.com/2019/12/10/21004060/connectsense-smart-in-wall-outlet-homekit-siri-alexa-google-assistant-price-features#comments
I did my whole 50’s house then moved and did another whole 70’s house and I just worked my way through over several months a room at a time. It’s a pain and you will get edge cases galore.
btw, if you want a BTS look at how a small company develops a product like this (over a number of years!), ConnectSense CEO @adamjustice is co-host of the Smart Home Show podcast and talks all about it in the latest episode. super interesting listen: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the-smart-home-show/id689329574
A lululemon exec! Oh man. Choiiiiice.
I made a run at Legend late this season and just crossed 4,100 Glory in solo queue as time expires. A year ago, I never thought I’d reach 2,100. Now I have every PvP pinnacle weapon except NF. Still not sure I can ever hit Legend, but it seems possible to me now. #destiny
Legend is 100% possible in solo queue. So much better than smashing into 4 stacks of pro players. Got unbroken done this season.
Side note: Since I do not love the word fiancée, I have take to calling @katzish my beyoncé. Perfect timing as it turns out: https://www.elle.com/culture/celebrities/amp29999871/beyonce-ivy-park-adidas-interview/
Some actual news today: She asked. I obviously said yes (see below). So from SF to Brooklyn to DC, come next summer I shall henceforth be known as Mrs. @katzish. Please update your contact lists accordingly❣️

My plan is coming together, need you/Amanda to have 3000 more kids, as this will be my army to invade Westeros and take my rightful place on the Iron Throne. It. Could. Happen.
Ok ok, enough already, stop asking....I will arrange your bachelor party. Did somebody say Ceasar’s/Celine Dion/Spearmint Rhino? Whose with the dawg?
Always got the sense Amanda wasn’t kinda into me. Have you guys discussed? Just sayin.
So honored Kara/Amanda have asked me to be responsible for the spiritual guidance of their pets should something happen to them #dogfather
Hell yes! Congrats to you both!
Congrats, some words of advice: —Introduce her as your second wife (keeps them on their toes); —The greatest risk to a marriage is a Yankee Candle #wisdom
Podcast awards are great. This is way better. So happy for you.
Ahh! Now this is a scoop. Mazel Tov!
Happiness is always worth celebrating.

RT @sallyshin: Statement from Away CEO Steph Korey h/t @dee_bosa
It goes without saying that I am pretty crap at a lot of this myself so this is not a polemic. But I’m aware of it, and I’m glad we’re talking about it.
Frankly, in management it is easier to dictate than to convince. If you get buy in and deliver agency you will get enormously out-sized returns from people without having to grind them to bones doing it.
I’ve done all sorts of unhealthy self flagellation to try to make things work (and I still do). But employees are not founders, and the arc of their story does not overlap with yours 1:1. Your story and theirs are intersecting for a time.
Yes, hard stuff is hard and things get snippy and people fight and say dumb things and treat people poorly. It’s going to happen because fire takes friction. But even though it HAPPENS in work it doesn’t have to be the WAY you work.
This brings a responsibility to honor their person, their life and their arc. Try to give them tools to flesh out this part of their story while using their energy to boost your story while you are intersecting. It’s two way.
It is understood — I’ve founded businesses, it is ALL CONSUMING even if you’re trying to be good to yourself. I get obsessiveness and the extra six millimeters to greatness being so much harder than the previous ten feet.
A whole category of people responding to this Away story by saying: hoo rah this is what excellence takes, destroy etc and acting like it’s just not understood.
