Songs for startup founders will hopefully make you smile! I recently graduated from Founder Institute (FI) and became the CEO and co-founder of Love To Eat It. For anyone who has an idea for a business and aspires to be a startup founder and wants to turn that idea into something tangible – check out FI. You’ll meet some amazing peers and mentors and lay down the foundation of your dream company!
It’s been a bit of a rollercoaster but like most startup founders, I seem to love rollercoasters, especially ones like Leviathon. Love To Eat It lets you get the recipes you like on Instagram from food bloggers straight to your mailbox. No more lost recipes or looking through your likes for a recipe you discovered! Check it out – sign up and try it for yourself!
We’ve already started sharing some delicious recipes you’ll love from some amazing food bloggers whom I absolutely adore having in my life! Davida Kugelmass from The Healthy Maven, Lynsey Walker of Lynsey Loves Food, Elena Dragoi from Garden Heart and Sofia Eydelman of From The Land We Live On. My favourite part of Love To Eat It is the opportunity to work with talented food bloggers who are basically my favourite people in the world.
I thought I’d put up a funny blog for all the startup founders in my cohort and my fellow female founders and lady bosses, a list of songs to play (and take with a pinch of salt) for when you’re having one of your moments! Trust me on Beyonce’s Flawless, blast that stuff before a pitch!
