Oh Business Heroes™️, are you worried about your cash flow yet???? If not, get panicking! Everyone who is anyone is getting ready for the bubble to burst. In the wake of WeWork and Uber and whatever is going on with the trade war, austerity is very hot again.
Why “again,” you ask? Well, we’ve been saying this every year since Facebook bought Instagram for a scandalous $1 billion back in 2013. (You may recall the bubblicious horror at that price tag.) For that reason, as one investor told me for this story, “most people in the ecosystem aren’t as worried as they should be.” Read it here:
And as a distraction, here’s a fun work diary I did with Gina Gutierrez, the co-founder of Dipsea, a start-up that creates erotic podcasts. It includes hunks, self-love, sacred planning and semi-lucid dreams.
Important Business Matters
Startup everyone’s into: Poo-Pourri. (This profile of its Business Hero™️ founder is incredible.)
Startup everyone’s over: Anything backed by SoftBank, apparently.
Reason to take up residence under your weighted blanket: Dopamine fasting.
Latest crush: Trash pirates.
Latest heartbreak: Why does the government protect our cars and food but not our data?
Latest thing the kids are into: Steak-umm. How have I never followed this account until now?
Latest thing the olds are into: Influencer business school.
Latest thing the trash raccoons are into: Twinkies cereal.
Latest thing the South Dakotans are on: Meth. They’re on it. (Not a joke.)
lol nothing matters
Fellow Business Heroes™, it is time to ask ourselves: How worried should we be?
