I fortunately managed to recover from being an employee in a startup-gone-wrong team. It took a toll on me when the place went from about 80 people to zero in the space of about 3 months, but I learnt lessons and moved on to something even better. How about you?

@morgan_young2 wow, that's really intense! so working on Churn now?
Morgan Young
@awt Yep! Generally we just think that smaller scale SaaS companies don't have the means to properly take hold of the data their applications yield to prevent user churn. We're going to make sure it's accessible to everyone, where they can just plug their application usage stats into our AI solution and it'll tell them who's at risk of churning :) Using AI for good eh! I do have an 'upcoming' page in case you want to follow along. How are things with you?

I bought a house. I know it may not sound like much but bough it after a lot of struggle. :-)

For me it was figuring out that a couple health issues were partly to blame for my fatigue and lack of energy...so maybe nights and weekend projects will be easier in 2020!

My first time in my life, I spent a lot of time for oversea, I went to Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, and spend 14 days in India. It is really a memorable moments to have chance to see a lot of things. I also learned a lot of new things, do the jobs that I never do. Thank you 2019 & welcome 2020!

I left a job I was too comfortable doing to start Olifano. It was just the shock to the status quo that I needed to inspire a whole wave of creativity both in and outside of work.
Happy new year
