Hey, it's Jan.
Thank you so much for signing up for my experiment. From today on, I will share short, very personal learnings about being a first time founder. It's a commitment: I want to challenge myself to take a step back, everyday, and focus on what I learned rather than what didn't work. Ready to join me?
Here's some background:
About 7 months ago I started working on SHNUPS besides my studies and student job. Being accepted to an incubator program in Berlin (which started in October) kind of abruptly pulled me into the daily hustle of startup life: concepts, design, code, pitches, pitch decks, more pitches, meetups, reconsidering concepts, pitches.
Here's the catch:
With all the work that has to be done, I found that for me it's very easy to forget why I'm doing this. Sometimes you just work for hours, go home and don't really know what you've done the whole day. This is what I'm fighting with this newsletter: My goal for 2016 is to switch my default mindset to "learning," forcing myself to write down a short learning, everyday.
Here's to 2016:
Hopefully you'll find it interesting! We have some dramatic changes ahead for SHNUPS in the first quarter of 2016, with name changes and everything. So it will be quite a bumpy road with definitely some learnings to put down.
Happy to have you on board!
Any questions? What did you learn today?
