Hi friends 👋
It’s been a busy, tumultuous start to the year. With the ongoing layoffs—it’s important to support the folks who have been impacted, and community is more important than ever.
I’m shifting my focus to be more intentional in how the community can support those who are looking for work, hiring or raising capital.
Oh! And to those who celebrate—Happy Lunar New Year!
In other news… one of my tweets this week got turned into a celebratory cake, getting 5M+ view. Oops!
