🧠 — the first of the month...

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 ], , stay woke (my YouTubes) and enjoy.

Hey friends!

It's the first Friday of the new year... the first newsletter of the new year...! Stoked!

And... I'm spending the first week of the new year in Seattle, visiting with friends and family. One of the things that my wife and I have decided to do this year, in 2020, is try to do a bit more traveling and learning how to become a "family that travels," if that makes sense.

[I did my yearly review if you want a longer read.]

So that's that.

Also, I announced a new project for the year: Vlog the startup for 365 days! I'm sure a few of you remember the first (and the second?) time I tried this and I'm excited (and a bit nervous) to start it again.

With that... we're going to keep the newsletter short and sweet. 2020 is going to be amazing and I can't wait to experience it with all of you.

Hit me up with how you're feeling... whatcha working on? What are you the most scared of?

To infinity and bitcoin.
