I remember when I was working at CollegeClub and I felt like what I was working on was changing the world. Feeling a part of something bigger that you care about can be incredibly fulfilling.
I slept in the office, working round the clock for stock options. Believing that what I was building could change the world.
I want to believe that again. I remember reading Derek’s “Stoked” story where he talks about the death of his dot-com dreams. I remember emailing him, “I’m still stoked!” I doubt I would have sent that email if I read his story today.
But I get glimpses of it, still. More and more.
I feel like I’m on the edge of being stoked again.
