In my role at M13, I support the whole team in their day-to-day efforts to help founders grow their businesses. It’s really rewarding to be part of a chain with so many impactful links, and the culture of teamwork at M13 reminds me daily that we’re all pulling in the same direction. One team, one dream.
I owned a dance business for eight years, and after working for myself so long, it’s inspiring to come back to a work environment filled with so many talented, driven, people that have so much energy and passion for their jobs and career goals. I’ve learned a lot from them (individually) and from this environment, which constantly challenges me to learn and experience new things.
One of the best things, for me, about working at M13 is seeing the founders we work with get the opportunity to pursue their dreams to their fullest potential. Not everyone currently has the resources or the opportunity to follow through on their ideas, so being a part of making that possible for people is really rewarding.
My best advice? Take care of yourself first. You can’t pour from an empty cup.
