How We Got Here

Working for a startup company has its perks: free beer, an entrepreneurial atmosphere, incredibly motivated and talented coworkers… free beer. But sometimes it has its downfalls. Two and a half years ago, the two of us left more stable jobs to take a risk at working for an up-and-coming startup in DC. Two and a half years later, we were told our jobs were being eliminated. Instead of taking demotions, we decided to take another risk: parachuting into the scary world of unemployment with only a month of severance on our backs.

We started it together, we ended it together, and now we’re doing what all laid-off writer/editors do: blogging it together.

Luckily for us, we live in the Nation’s Capital, a playground of free lectures, events, classes, and more. With this blog, we want to trade in mopey afternoons on the couch for productive days learning, living, and sharing our experiences with y’all.

Onward and Upward,

K & S
