When I first started developing Shanah, it was February. Perhaps just a few weeks — even days — before the virus spread fully out of China and put the whole world on lockdown.Continue reading “Wartime CEO”
Now, I’m humble enough to say that I don’t really know a whole lot about all three of these things. With that said, there’s a definitive pattern I’ve seen in all three — including the likes of things like college admissions — that I think works well enough to dedicate a post to.
When running a startup, it traditionally isn’t recommended that you go it alone. A lot of work is required — typically too much for any one person — and a lot of different skill-sets are needed that is more likely to be dispersed across a large team rather than in one person’s hands (See: You Can’t Do It All Alone). However, there’s another key, non-obvious advantage to having a cofounder that I wanted to go over in this blogpost.Continue reading “The Cofounder Advantage”
I’ve talked a lot in the past about how difficult yet vital it is to develop a positive growth mindset. At this point, I’m still not sure of a sure-fire way of developing one; but I’ve thought enough to think of three quick tips that might help anyone who’s interested in trying.
We talk a lot about both diversification and diversity, yet describe them as if they’re fundamentally different concepts. However, I don’t think the diversification we might talk about over investing is all too different from the diversity we talk about in the corporate field.

Life is a hard thing to deal with. There’s a lot of moving parts, variables, and decisions to make. All of these create small outcomes that eventually level to your life’s path. Because of this, it’s hard to determine a method of finding the best way forward. Fortunately, we’ve already created many simulations on life; simulations called games. This post is dedicated to delving into some of the strategies gaming uses which can be applied to real life.
