🧠 — i'm late, but, i don't care.

Hi, I'm John and these are my candid musings on life and leading a distributed-first, venture-backed startup in San Francisco. Subscribe [ brain.みんな ], , follow the year-long vlog, and enjoy.

i almost forgot to send this.

Hey Friends!

I'm late. And, that's because I decided to take a half-day yesterday and a half-day today. So, since I generally write my newsletters late-Thursdays (and send them out early-morning Friday), I simply didn't get to it.

And, I almost forgot.

But, here's the thing. I want to do what I say that I will do. So, that's what I'm going to do.

I love you. I respect you. I hope you're doing well. I want you to know that I'm doing well (really!) and that I'm living a very full (and complex) life.

Is life easy? No. Is it stressful? Yes. Would I trade it for any other? No (because your baggage and issues and shit is probably just as bad as mine!).

So, we're all square. We'll be fine. We gonna slay, queen.

To infinity and bitcoin.
