Living Up...even when it gets scary 😱
This may sound crazy, but when my eyes pop open each day, my first thought really is "I get to go to work!" I get to spend every day focused on work that I’m passionate about and inspired by. Even still, learning so much in such a short time is freaking intense! Some days I feel completely overwhelmed by the volume of things that I don’t know.
In the past two weeks I have tested 20 (!) different tech platforms for building LiveUp. Each test was like learning another language, but it paid off! I think I finally found the one 💍. It is a woman-led, mission-driven company with community at its center. It’s a place where I am inspired by my neighbors and that really matters to me.
I’ve been doing tons of research about the influence of other people on our attitudes and behaviors. I’ll bore you with all the details another time, but the short story for now: Who we spend our time with is the biggest determinant of our overall well-being, according to leading neuroscientists. So many of you are proving this out as you lift me up on the daily and help me keep going through this sometimes daunting discovery phase. Today, I’m feeling super grateful for so many of you, including
Our Uplifter test crew, who are continuing to play in the new space each day and teaching me so much through their curiosity and experimentation.
The amazing Eli Dagostino, a natural-born Uplifter, rockstar UX designer, and one of my favorite humans who is helping me manage tech questions, almost daily.
You! Thanks so much for helping me continue to get the word out about LiveUp by sharing this link.
Cheers to everyone out there doing hard things and lifting each other up along the way. It’s worth it and it matters.
So much love,
