Techbikers Copenhagen to Berlin 2017 – Mission Accomplished!

Trying to sum up the ride will have to wait for another post. Instead, I’d love to share some of the thoughts that riders shared after the ride (I kept them anonymous for privacy). One can meet people for ‘industry events’ over drinks 10 times and struggle to make a connection. But cycle with them for 3 days, and you would have made friends for life.

Holiday Hacks for Founders

quotes about holiday

I blew it. Everything was going so well. I started a 30 day blogging challenge, and was religiously disciplined about posting every day. I even posted after a 2-hour visit to the hospital when my daughter accidentally scratched my cornea (it only hurt when I blinked, if you know what I mean).
