    I was working for a 500+ Startups funded startup, and we ran out of funding (cofounders are still there) which coincided nicely right around the same time I was thinking about leaving to venture out and work on a problem that I'd been thinking about for awhile. So while GleeBox is my main focus, I'm freelancing as well (a girl's gotta eat..)

    Pro's: -The great thing about freelancing is that it's nice to get my head out of one project to work on another with a fresh mind and perspective. -Working on a product in a completely different space/attacking a completely different problem is invigorating and helps keep tunnel vision away. -Keeps my skills and mind sharp.

    Cons: -Takes time away from GleeBox (that's okay though, I don't sleep - sleep is overrated anyways). -I also have to spend some time networking to let people know I'm freelancing.
