Big year! I brought my second child into the world, sacrificed 780+ hours of sleep to raise little humans, recruited dozens of excellent people into tech. Brainstormed new business ideas with friends and mentors (3 good ideas, the rest bad). Developed a dedicated meditation practice (3,000 hours clocked so far), saved a lot of money, learned 25+ new recipes, went through an impressive amount of Meiomi Pinot Noir. Let's go, 2022!

Ran a Business
Survived the Pandemic
Learned some hard lessons
+ 1
Survived a Pandemic. Technically it's not over yet, but I'm marking this down because honestly I didn't think we would get through this year. March 13 was the day I drove home from the office crying because I understood the pandemic was extremely serious, and I had no idea what we were going to do. If you're another small biz owner in tech and you want to talk about the struggle of that whole experience, or if you're a new business owner who wants to talk to someone who has been through some shit, I'm putting this here for your attention in particular. It has been a deeply challenging time, and IMO the best way to use this experience is to share what I've learned with anyone who's interested.

Became self-employed. After working as a project manager for a small telecom contractor, I quit. My plans were to teach yoga, pursue writing, and support our fledgling business, BlackStar Group.
