I learned that the hard way. Do the things you love and only do the things you love and tell the people that you love that you love them and make time to go see people. I'm excited about the country opening backup and my ability to go see friends and family that I have not seen for a long time. I think as entrepreneurs and as startup, folks, we forget that. But make that happen. Make it happen. Because at the end of the day, it's the only thing that matters and don't have any regrets.
