Took a lot from me mentally to leave consulting because I had a great support system there but I didn’t want to travel anymore because of a growing family. I joined a series-C startup and it’s been a dumpster fire of politics and incompetence and I totally regret joining. I saw some red flags but things only got terrible due to the economic situation with tech/startups. Manager is horrible and we’ve had constant reorgs. With a new kid on the way, the uncertainty is killing me. Any advice?

I will be relocating closer to the city in October and am looking for my next amazing opportunity at a blooming startup. Ideally seeking a high velocity, customer oriented role that requires travel, as I am an expert in “boots on the ground” communication, training, sales, and implementation efforts.
Both of my previous startups have gone public or been acquired with myself on staff, so I can truly help take you towards where you want to go! Feel free to drop any leads below.

Five elite nights credits would be worthless unless you plan to stay 19 more nights after 81 and spend $20k, at which point you would get an ambassador. Ambassadors are pretty worthless as well so the suite nights are still a better option.
That’s my plan too :)
No love for mattress?
I’ve been considering this option I do love a good hotel bed

That’s the kicker!
