Well I’m stoked! BDH is 3 years old.
We’re not yet in major media, known in pop-culture, or IPOing. Though still a far cry from what we’ll be doing in the future, I think there’s something to be said for growing for 3 years as a 100% bootstrapped business doing innovative things with happy clients.
Some personal reflections & realizations from the last year:
Besides seeing clients get to market with products we’ve helped them design, learning is by far one of the most rewarding parts of this endeavor.
This coincides with the prior point, but the physiology & sociology of engineering / business / life is fascinating. The technical stuff is really cool, but everything we do is human-centric.
Tough times in entrepreneurship can be really tough. The number of zeros after the dollar sign changes, the risk generally doesn’t. Shits crazy let me tell you.
Life sure is cool! There’s a lot of people doing things that make our time here a great window in history. It’s really inspiring & I’m working hard to be one of them.
In the interest of not taking up too much of your time, I’m keeping this short.
As always, & most importantly, a huge huge thank you to our clients, vendors, industry partners, & friends that have done so much to support BDH. I mean this from the bottom of my heart, it really means a lot.
Looking forward to checking back in when we’re 4!
