In the run up to full-time startup

(Names changed for privacy reasons)

Yesterday, I met Alexis to tell her about Joey. To my pleasant surprise, she was really enthusiastic about my idea. I noticed the same wonder + excitement in other colleagues I have spoken to. Natalia was so interested in the mechanics of how one goes from an idea to building an app. It is almost as if my decision is inspiring people in their own work lives. I am delighted at how much interest, feedback and goodwill is suddenly flowing in from friends, colleagues and people I am reaching out to.

The logo is near-ready, the mock ups are ready and waiting for my further input and I am feeling so upbeat lately. I’m realising that joy is like love. You know when it is there but when it is not, you can’t really put your finger on what’s missing.
