Started the work day with a very energizing product roadmap discussion with the tech co-founder. The dude converts cycnisism to optimism. It is a great superpower (no sarcasem)!
Went on a long walk with Laura and made another round of critical “what’s next in life” decisions.
I love Notion but it is finiky. I’m stumped on something I thought would be easy. I bet it is easy, just not obvious.
Signed the most equitable co-founder agreement I’ve ever been offered. More on that when there is a product to show.
Spent too much time seeing if the puppies have been born yet. Nope.
Took an proposal draft and started crafting a recommendation on how to move forward. I expect this one to be every bit as equitable as the other. Hooray!
Thought about why I feel good about both of these things even though there is no short-term revenue (this is all spec work in a way). Our values are aligned. These are for-profit businesses with social impact baked into the foundation. Will they work? Who knows! But if they do a lot of people win and that has me excited about waking up every day.
Bonus - Laura is a co-founder in one of them.
I’m not accepting any more equity work offers. I also need cash to pay the bills. I need to secure one or two more short-term consulting contracts.
I love/hate accounting. It bends my brain but when I get a concept it is so so so rewarding and applicable to everything I’m doing right now. I think that helps a lot in the learning process.
