Building this organization has been the greatest privilege and adventure in a life filled with both. As I’ve shared, privilege and luck have been my steady companions on this adventure, but there are a few things we got “right” in our early years, and I’m proud to share these here. Each deserves a lengthy story in its own right, but I’ll save those for another time: “Fall in love with the problem, not the solution.” Start small and earn the right to exist. Set modest milestones within your reach. What you are is more than what you do. Everything takes twice as long as you think it should, and that’s okay.
