If you could go back to your early days of:

  1. learning to code
  2. founding a start-up

what, if anything, would you have done differently now in retrospect?

Hey Annie ๐Ÿฆ„โšก,

Glad to have you here ๐Ÿ™

  1. I would probably learn more. I used to rush into building things without thinking. It was great because I learned tons of new things while building and I had projects to be proud of. But sometimes I could use a bit of planning and proper learning to do things the right way. There are some things that can take much more effort to change on the go if you don't get them right at the start. Today, I'm trying to balance between theoretical learning of best practices and hands-on experience.

  2. I wouldn't do anything differently but my advice is team, team, and team! Make sure you trust your founders. Ideas tend to change along the way but the team is here to stay. If you can't trust them it will be very hard to move and progress.
