I’m plotting my exit as we speak 🏃‍♀️

I would love that! What kind of start-up?

Who doesn’t ? 😀

What’s holding everyone back? I’ve wanted to quit many times to pursue a side gig for income while working on a project. Parents telling me to stay a little longer

working on a startup myself set to launch in a few months, if you’re a ios Dev or have experience in go to market strategy, drop a burner :)

Just found out my cousin's husband passed away. He was 34. Had battled cancer & heart disease since his teens.

I'm torn apart for her kids. I know it's their loss not mine but I can't handle it.
