“This Feels Fucking Insanely Awesome”

I received an email from one of my founders the other night that made me feel like a proud daddy.  No, it wasn’t that they IPO’d, or raised $20 million, or closed a big deal, or got TechCrunch to wax poetic about how awesome they are.  It was relating to me the support she was getting from fellow Resolute founders and how appreciative she was:  

it’s almost 1am

I am on email with 3 Resolute founders

there are intros flying, advice coming and going, drinks and dinner being organized, calls scheduled, virtual hugs exchanged, + lots of talk about how we all need a freaking break

it feels AWESOME to have these people in my life. Fucking insanely awesome. I am having a high moment now and it’s thanks to you and I wanted to tell you.

At Resolute, we like to think/say our “value-add” is much less us and much more the community of founders we have brought together.  And, as we have grown over the past 12 months to a community of 25 awesome founding teams, the connective tissue between founders is taking hold and a real support network is coming into place.  Which is incredibly gratifying for me to see. Even more gratifying is when founders like Nataly reach out to thank me — even though the whole point is that it is really about them not me.

What is also cool is that Nataly is founder of Happier, Inc, “the Happiness Company.”  And her email made me happier all day.
