There are those times in life when the discouragement runs deep. The emotions are on overdrive and everything looks a bit bleaker. As a founder of a startup I can relate to these feelings and those times. The emotional toll that comes with carrying the burden of supporting a group of people. These are your co-workers, your teammates, your friends…even your family. The pressure is intense. The feeling of being a disappointment or failing to provide weighs heavily upon you. I empathize with you and I struggle with you. Trust your team. Trust yourself. Trust your vision. I tell you this to encourage you just as I have and continue to tell myself. You are not a disappointment.
