    Honest answer is that I felt I could do more to improve people's lives by working on something I was full invested in and believe in. Being a founder of a start-up means that you can shape something that could help someone in even a small way.

    It was a massively difficult decision to go all in on starting a start-up and lose some great clients. Luckily we all managed a good transition between the two.

    I felt like the 3 years freelancing was almost an apprenticeship for being a start-up founder. If I'd started something like Steer back in 2010, it probably would have failed by now.
