What I didn’t expect from Stripe was an amazing community of engaged entrepreneurs and start-up founders. I feel so much less alone seeing the connections between all of our shared journeys. For those times where I may trip and fall, maybe I can share and prevent half a dozen others doing the same thing. Or if I am pushed for time and need a new piece of tech, rather than researching for hours, I can ask the community and get a raft of responses, recommendations, and advice. It’s a no brainer.
