Quitting my startup

It's been seven hours and fifteen days since I decided to quit my startup.

I mean...it has been fifteen days, but not sure about the hours - it's just a Sinead O'Connor reference.

It was the most difficult decision I have ever made.

I built my baby for 2 years, from scratch, and then I decided to let it go.

But since I've been gone I can do whatever I want (another reference).

And that's hard too.

For two years plus some months, my only goal was to make it thrive.

We grew a lot, we went to the market and the market loved us.

I just...didn't love the market.

That's important to me.

If you lose your nostalgia for the future, you have to find it again, no matter the cost
