It's possible to feel so exhausted and yet so energized to take on the world, at the same exact time. We can vouch for that - the entire team. Cranking away - line by line, email by email, human by human, gift by gift, image by image, ... it's a marathon, after all. That's a photo of me and my cofounder, Christie Gettler, by the way. :)
That's one of the lessons that Jonathan Sposato gave to me early on - that this is a marathon and that we have to pace ourselves. You want to work hard, yes. You also want to be mindful of where your burnout zone is - and how far you are from imploding before everyone's eyes from just pure insane exhaustion. For me, I can feel "it" beneath my skin when I get close. I'll actually call it out loudly and verbally to another witness as a way to monitor myself to take a breather. It's like that daily now. Today, we went for tater tots and burgers. Yesterday, after we had our pitch night with investors, I drank 3 big glasses of wine and ate a big bowl of white rice with kimchi. It was amazing.
Today, I might hit up that piano again and throw it up on Periscope (@ArryinSeattle).
GiftStarter is looking amazing every day - we are just SO EXCITED to share with you our progress. More launching soon.
