My Thoughts on Failure and Shutting Down Pitch’n

Estimated reading time: 5 minutes

Last week, I announced that I was shutting down my startup, Pitch’n.

After almost a year of pursuing the rollercoaster ride that is running a startup, I decided that it was time to call it quits. The decision didn’t come easily but I feel it was for the best. The experience gained from Pitch’n has been invaluable and the people I have met are amazing.

After announcing the news, I have been overwhelmed from the emails and responses from the community. Vancouver really is an amazing place to try and start a company and I am grateful to be among such a supportive group of people and other awesome entrepreneurs.

Since the response to my letter has been so strong, I thought I would also share it here since the Pitch’n website will be going down at the end of May.

Productivity Experiment: Monday Mail Day

Estimated reading time: 2 minutes

Currently, I manage 3 separate email inboxes for my personal, freelance, and Pitch’n emails – and every week I get a ton of emails. They range from business emails to articles and blogs I subscribe to or just personal emails from friends and family.

Over the last number of months, I have been using Mailbox to help organize me emails by scheduling unimportant emails to come back at a more convenient time. This removes them from the inbox so I don’t feel overwhelmed and makes prioritizing things a lot easier.

However, I have found that as the week goes on, I’m getting busier and busier and I can never find the time to get to the emails I really want to read.
