“Growth for the sake of growth is the modus operandi of a cancer cell.” I’m not sure who originally said that, but I repeat it to myself daily and have added to it what I’ve just realized might actually be my own definition of success. “Growth for the sake of healing, is the M.O. of a cure.”
When we started this project I never would have asked for permission to get everyone excited, take everyone's hard earned money, ask my friends work their fingers to the bone, take too long, go over budget, and then wait 7 years to have the balls to show my face. So all I can do now it ask for your forgiveness.
I realized that I don’t need a boss to tell me I’m good at what I do. I don’t need a recruiter in a cubicle to tell me I am good at what I do. And I do not need to sacrifice my self-respect to gain status, compensation, or even a larger platform for people to see my work. I have decided that am going to build my own damn platform. And EVERYONE, is welcomed to stand on it with me.
