Hello First name / there!
Did you enjoy our February update? What, you didn't read it?! Oh, right, that's because I didn't send one. gasp. Us founders are our own harshest critics and it's really really hard for us to take breaks because our success is predicated upon forward momentum and constant traction. This inevitably leads to burn out, which I have suffered from in the past and promised myself I wouldn't incur again. In the spirit of mental health, we were staring down a February school break with no plans for our kids in crummy winter weather and decided we all needed to get away for a real vacation.
We went. We didn't have internet. We couldn't work and it was for the better. Everyone needs a break now and then, yourself included (yes, I'm talking to you).
Ok, you came here for updates, so let's get to it. Listen to this fun Boston Speaks Up podcast, read about the mom tax and how the great resignation is really ⅓ of working moms being forced out of jobs, and smile at meeting zoom friends in person. More on those below.
Most exciting is that we are literally weeks away from replacing our MVP with our first custom platform! 🎉😁 Founders - be on the lookout for emails about what this means for your Pitch it Plan (PiP) accounts. Investors - we have an ever-growing waitlist of people who want to be the first to check out our discovery platform. Add your name here if you want a private invite during our testing phase.
