The CEOs Brain is a randomly-delivered newsletter where I share my candid and unfiltered thoughts on being a CEO of a startup here in Silicon Valley.
It started as a personal note to friends and the word got out; it’s bigger now.
Why Should You Listen to Me?
Good question… instead, let me share with you why I started writing this newsletter and you can be the ultimate judge. 👩🏻⚖️
Once upon a time, I became a CEO of a venture backed company in San Francisco. I was wholly unprepared, especially since I’ve never really wanted that particular title or role; I’ve always been a technical founder, happy to build in the background.
But building a startup is hard and I needed help, badly. So, I started emailing my good friends once a week, leaders who were “in the trenches” with me: CEOs, startup founders, entrepreneurs and indie app creators with whom I had gotten to know over the years and who authentically knew what THE STRUGGLE was really all about.
Hell, they were living it with me! So, I kept going—writing once a week on topics like:
My experience as a vc-backed startup founder / CEO here in SF / SV.
Managing the tension between work and family.
That’s pretty much it. Hope you find it meaningful, refreshing, and encouraging… because that’s why I started writing this thing in the first place.
