Lessons From a Former Founder

I have put off writing this post for four years, which is how long it has been since I exited my own startup, FreshNeck. Two main reasons for this:

  1. I needed time, and additional experiences under my belt, to properly reflect and process lessons learned.
  2. It hurts, and this isn’t easy for me to write. I have many regrets, and some wounds still haven’t healed.

But I’ve learned in the years since to embrace my own vulnerability (thanks Reboot), and am finally in a place where I am comfortable wearing it all on my sleeve. And most importantly, I feel like my experiences have truly helped me as an investor, and perhaps they can be helpful to my team, and the founders I am lucky enough to partner with on their journeys.
