I loved my first company, and only a complete disaster would have shaken me enough to leave. Here's what happened.
In four years, I'd taken on well over 20 odd jobs. Here are the ones I stuck with!
Ah, startup life, where you have no money, a small team, and a big idea. So how do you get the talent you need to get to the next level?
That #startupgrind is real. Here are my daily tricks to stay calm at the center of the storm.
My first post-grad boss told me there's no such thing as work-life balance. Here's how we took that to extremes.

Stock options are Schrodinger's benefit. They're both valuable and worthless, until proven otherwise. Lets talk about the hoops we jump through in the name of our potential unicorns.

A little over a year ago, I was still working for the same startup that I’d been working with for 3 years, and had fought tooth and nail for the cost of living adjustments that allowed me to keep grinding the 60+ hour weeks. I did a little soul searching, a lot of research and outreach, and put in a ton of work. Now, a year later, I’m glad I did. I went from earning $38,000 a year to $95,000, and while my story is a little different from most, the process can be used by anyone.
