Stepping Back To Step Forward

Sometimes when you believe in someone or something, you have to step back in order to see it mature the way it needs to. As BOND continues to grow, I've chosen to step down from my day to day role with the company and will be formally joining the advisory board to allow the team to remain lean and execute with ruthless focus on the immediate technical initiatives that lie ahead. While moving on from something that I've been so fully invested in on an hourly basis for the past nine months will take some time to get used to, it is something that is a familiar road for a lot of founding team members in the world of young companies. I am confident the team will continue to build towards the original vision we began that undertaking with: Thoughtfulness At Scale.

With that said, I am extremely excited about the new company that I'm joining this month. There is a lot of new hustle ahead, but having worked with some of this team before, I am thrilled to be stepping in at such a pivotal time in the company’s history.  Much more to come on that in the future.

But for now, I am letting the lessons learned in building BOND to this point reveal themselves as I percolate on all of the new experiences and exposure I've gained throughout this process. And as the dust of those ideas settle a little more, I'll do my best to capture some of them here.

Building BOND

Today is the big day, today is the day we're launching BOND! (you can download it HERE)

BOND makes you look good by helping you follow though on your good intentions. By combining technology and tradition, we're making it easy to show other people that you care by sending beautiful gifts and wax sealed handwritten notes from your phone.
We all have personal and professional moments that we want to acknowledge with more than just an email and people we want to reach out to with more than just another text.  But, somewhere between looking for a stamp and finding someone's address, our best intentions waiver.  Never mind the pressure of picking the perfect gift.
BOND believe giving should be fun again and that a simple gesture can go a long way. And to pay it a forward and get the giving started, your first notes are on me, just use the code FREENOTE at checkout.
It would really mean a lot to me if you'd download BOND, send out a few notes or a gift, and let me know what you think.  This is the biggest undertaking I've ever been a part of and I couldn't be prouder of my team and what we are building.
Thank you in advance for your ongoing help and advice.
