In the six months since our Craigslist app has gotten off the ground, there have been a lot of ups and downs. Of course, ups and downs are a part of any career. But I quickly found that the mood extremes are far more pronounced at a startup than at a multinational tech media company or large research university.
It turns out that the startup roller coaster actually quite typical. Fortunately, there are tactics for managing the highs and lows, as I discuss in the Invantory blog (see link, above).
I also think it’s important to note that while we are still in the early stages, every day when I get up, I look forward to getting started on my company’s business. The challenges change every day, but the wins, when they come, are positively exhilarating.
