What does love look like?
Running your own company is going to put you through the toughest times you can experience. I'm not saying this to discourage you to go for it, because it is also the most wonderful thing that's ever happened to me. I get the chance to do something I'm actually good at, the way I want it and with people I have a great relationship with.
My team is probably the one reason why I didn't quit during the hardest times. Not only because I felt a sense of responsability for their jobs - though I do - but mostly because they have trusted me. It's so simple, yet the most powerful kind of love and trust that I have ever felt.
I simply wanted to say "Thank you team. You are the reason I wake up with the will to get us out of trouble when we are, and the reason I cry out loud half of my time. All I need to do this is your trust and I feel so empowered through it"
