Short-termism stifles innovation and economic growth, and encourages financial shenanigans. The pressure to meet quarterly targets sees companies resort to ill conceived deals and sometimes financial chicanery to make the numbers. Big hopes for Long-Term Stock Exchange @ltse!

In our convo, @ericries urged people who write about the future of work to be more than "dinner entertainment" for the status quo forces. This really stuck with me. Being a management minstrel might be fun, but it won't change what's worth changing. youtube.com/clip/UgkxX_Ouw…

But the time to act is now. We have 8 years left until the IPCC notes we reach the point of no return. Whatever California does, the Country shall follow. Let 2022 be the year our State becomes a model for creating a just, prosperous, net-zero emissions economy. (7/7)

Origin story: When I was 23, I left my cushy job at Facebook to build an EdTech startup. I didn't have: • A business idea • A co-founder • Funding 2.5 years later, I've raised $2.2M in venture capital and now lead a team of five full-time. Here's what I've learned:
