The Month That Wasn't: Warming Up

Oct 1, 2021

I’m officially one month into building Loopin full-time. Here’s a quick update of everything that happened last month  — personal, professional, and everything in between!

1. Met more people “first time” this month than the entire year put together! (IRL + virtual)

Here's an auto generated insight from my calendar:

2. Struggling to keep up with a schedule

Context: For overlap with my India team, I start my day early

Challenge: Reduced energy levels mid-day and going to bed early

Here are a few tricks I've tried so far:

  • Matching tasks based on my energy level through the day
  • Centering my focus through minute long meditations before work blocks
  • Flow playlist
  • Reducing distractions through focus modes on phone and App time limits
  • Sleep meditations to wind down

3. Started OnDeck Founders program

The most amazing community of talented founders and operators that I’ve come across. The energy of this group is phenomenal (and highly contagious).

4. Keeping up with Loopin

  • Noticing lower sign-up rates from organic social, largely from LinkedIn
  • Kickstarted content creation after a brief break to revisit SEO strategy
  • Shared Loopin on beta product listing websites: here and here

5. Exciting stuff coming up this month

  • Onboarding early waitlist users
  • Building a community of productivity enthusiasts
  • Redesigning Loopin website
