One of the perks of working at a forward-thinking, venture-backed startup is a stocked kitchen where breakfast choices abound! One of the perks of leaving said forward-thinking, venture-backed startup is the chance to pursue another startup more entrenched in design. The tradeoff? No free breakfast. The gain? A job that hopefully won’t feel like a job. The opportunity? A reason to make myself a nutritious breakfast and feel less guilty about all that juicing pulp! Time to bake some pulp!
