Listen. It’s time. This is it. 2017. New. Year. Now.

Every. single. One. Getting fired from the company that I co-founded happened because I had gone months without speaking up. I overpaid for some things because I didn’t want to appear unreasonable, so I just stopped… negotiating. Failed to protect. Failed to love. Failed to lead. Failed to make art. Failed to speak up.
