  • Insight from @giovannaminenna on the #STARTpodcast talking about the startup lifestyle: "It's about figuring out what kind of lifestyle you want to create for yourself. You can sacrifice a lot to have a lot of gain but will you truly be happy? And are you going to be doing something you love every day?"
