Janice @Janice

What will you accomplish by end of January?

What did you do yesterday to work toward your goal?

What will you do today?

  1. 3

    End of January

    Validate an idea. Maybe two.


    Biomo: Met with Venture Out to express concerns due to lost co-founder.
    Biomo: Kicked out of Venture Out due to lost co-founder.


    Biomo: Write thank you notes for client interviews.

    1. 2

      Okay, they gave you room and time to grow. Make sure to connect w/ folks from Venture Out org on LinkedIn... you never know when opportunities, partnerships or deals will result from those relationships. Also, see if you can bring value (aka help in a small way) w/ anyone you had contact w/ during your VO process.

      Take a nap. Eat some great food. Listen to How I Built This podcast for comfort. Then smile because you're awesome!

      1. 2

        I'm smiling because you're awesome! Thanks for the advice!

    2. 2

      Ack.. that was fast.

      1. 1

        Can't really blame 'em. They accepted a team. They expected a team. (And thanks for the catch re form!)

    3. 2

      omg they kicked you out? That's horrible!

      I still like Biomo :) And I'll probably like any other pivots too :)

      1. 1

        Not gonna lie. It was.

        But, in truth, given all else on my plate, I likely couldn't the demands/do right by the program on my lonesome.

  2. 2

    1. January

    • Have a magic moment w/ a customer!
      2. Yesterday
    • Client meeting. Client shared their priorities and now open to trying different approaches.
    • Daily outreach.
      3. Today
    • Reply client's email.
    • Update Asana projects w/ new tasks.
    • Work on public landing page copy.
    1. 2

      Is the landing page ready for public consumption? I'd love to see it!

      1. 1

        Not yet, still drafting the copy and redefining offer based on Q4 learnings. I'll send you a link for review ahead of time when you dm me on Twitter or LinkedIn.
