Refusing to give up on your idea CAN pay off 🙅‍♂️ (Startup Watching #224)

Happy Thursday Watchers!
I took an unintended break from Startup Watching. 😬
Thanksgiving was spent with tons of family and friends. Then last week I was in Birmingham for a client Christmas party and we had our first ever Krit team retreat!
We rented a beach house a couple hours outside of Charleston and flew everyone in for the weekend. I’ll write more about it soon, but here are a few quick notes:
  • People: 7
  • Time: 3 days / 3 nights
  • Cost: ~$5,000
  • Updated values: Transparency, Balance, Integrity, Craftsmanship, Empathy
  • Personal highlights: jumping in the creek when it was 50 degrees out, Karen’s guacamole, Austin Carr teaching me how to tell when a pan is hot enough
If you’ve thought about doing a retreat with your team I highly recommend it, especially if you’re remote. It will end up being one of the highlights of the whole year for me.
Cheers from Charleston ✌️
