What makes RxJS so difficult? I have heard many beginner developers say this.

Self doubt is always a thing, but owning who you are as a woman and taking advantage of the advantages you have as being a woman in tech! There are plenty! :)

What are the few things you learned the hard way while building your startup?

Linda Campbell one of the hardest things to learn as an entrepreneur is that not everyone is going to be as driven as you, or as invested in your company because it's your baby! :) you must come to terms with that. :) another hard thing i learned was the importance or value of understanding code / development as a business entrepreneur. i wish i had before my first startup - it would have helped me communicate better with my developers, but c'est la vie!
