Building a company is not easy.
It’s not necessarily about the difficulty of making something from nothing. It’s about the loneliness, dissonance, and the difficulty in making decisions—it’s about the emotions that come with the ups and downs of building a business and not having enough information to make those decisions.

Goddard knows a lot about community but, more importantly, he knows how to surround himself with the right people.
