One of the hardest things I've been dealing with....👇🏼
Rejection. @markdalton_ and I have focused this entire month on creating new opportunities for our business. But the one downside is all the NO's that come into my inbox.
It makes checking emails 10000x times more stressful. This is a little tidbit of being an entrepreneur that I don't see anyone talking about.
I don't see entrepreneurs talking about the sheer volume of opportunities that you must create in order to live full time off of a business (in the beginning years). It's ridiculously hard to maintain, but crucial in order to keep going.
That's been 2019 in a nutshell for us, but guess what! We are still living off of our business, which is something no one thought would happen. LOL.
Anything interesting pop up in your inbox lately?! [comment below👇🏼]

Just finished my LIVE with @codingblonde ... here's how it went👇🏼
WOW, Masha, founder of Coding Blonde, is such an incredible human being! She is so dedicated to her mission of getting more girls into tech. We had a lot of fun talking all things female empowerment, entrepreneurship, and tech.
Masha and I are across the world from each other (10 hour time zone difference), and we were still able to talk and get to know each other. This is one of the best feelings!
Thanks to everyone that tuned in! The LIVE will be on my story for 24 hours if you want to watch❤

I woke up to quite an email this morning 👇🏼
I sent my media kit to a brand. The brand responded with basically "you're not worth it."
I could sit here and think "Is he right?" "Should I lower my prices?" But this is NOT the first time a brand (or person) has said something like this to me.
I know what I charge is fair. I know my services are high quality. Therefore, when someone tells me I'm not worth it, I think "I'll find someone else to work with then."
There are millions of brands, employers, and customers. No need to get caught up on one that makes you feel bad. Focus your energy on finding the ones that will make you feel like the best.
What would you do in this situation?

The story of how I became so disciplined👇🏼
I was 8 years old when my Dad first took me to the golf course. I took an interest, so my dad got me a coach and I started learning to play golf.
A month in and I was already in my first tournament. My summers were spent competing in 2 golf tournaments a week, practicing for hours a day, and going to a coach to continue improving my swing.
I developed my work ethic when I spent hours everyday practicing. I developed my focus from competing constantly in high-pressure golf tournaments. I developed my discipline because I wanted to be the best golfer so I could get my college paid for.
Discipline is a part of me, and it all started when I was 8. I'm actually kind of grateful that I grew like this. It's taught me that countless hours of practice will pay off when you're under pressure, anger is the worst thing you can do to your focus, and the thoughts that go through your mind literally dictate bad shots vs good shots.
Btw, my best score ever is a 73😉
Did you play any sports growing up? [comment below👇🏼]

Google has released new Pixel smartphones that have motion sensing technology.
One of the most talked about improvements in the new Pixel phones is a system called Motion Sense. The system is powered by a small radar sensor inside the device that detects movement around the phone. The technology permits users to control some phone operations by waving their hand in front of the device. This can be useful for doing things without having to pick up the phone.
The camera uses machine learning to recognize people who have appeared in photos before. The system can then automatically focus on them in new photos. It can also capture astrological images.
Impressed recorder app is designed to record different kinds of activities and transcribe any speech as it happens. It can also identify other sounds, like music or cheering. The app permits searches within the recordings to find specific words or sounds.
The device costs $799. A larger model, the Pixel 4 XL, sells for $899. Both are expected to be available worldwide on October 24.

To be understood. It’s tough, when you know you’re more than what you might seem yet often feel less than what you are.
This year, I attended Grace Hopper for the first time. Before leaving, there were all sorts of thoughts going through my mind. Am I prepared to attend this conference? Do I deserve to go? Dare I even call myself an engineer?
At that moment, the thought of my non-refundable airfare was the only thing stronger than my imposter syndrome :P
So I went... catch👏🏽me👏🏽knee👏🏽deep👏🏽 in cracking the coding interview, getting my leetcode grind on, roughly 4 million tabs open in chrome 😅
Amidst the pressure and the high stakes though, these ladies understood me.
Shoutout to @vishakhamallya@secretlifeofcode@marynguy @programm.r @air.sea.sam @adressyengineer@nataliecodes@sydroee@lindavivah@jscarlettcorona @lenora.porter @cgooddesigns@lipstickandtech@sundaskhalidd @techsesh
Ladies who let you crash at their crib, snack you up when you’re running on fumes, press pass you up to the front row, and gently tap on your shell when you’re overworking yourself. Women who build you up because there is enough success to go around. Individuals who are equally peers and role models, humble yet intelligent, stronger than they’re given credit for, and kind to the core.
Thank you ladies, and everyone else that I met/got to know better, for a phenomenal experience at the Grace Hopper Celebration 🎉🎊 Can’t wait for GHC2020!

It’s finally here, @virgingalactic space wear! What do you all think?
Some seriously cool futuristic designs. The design incorporates a lot of athletic wear materials and properties. My favourite part of the design is, “a clear pocket on the inside of the jacket above the heart for a photo of a loved one, and a patch unique to each mission that is removable from the suit to be attached to the Future Astronaut’s flight jacket for everyday wear; a jacket which will be presented to astronauts after each mission.” 🔹
So why is it called space wear? I’m on the fence about what is considered a spacesuit as these space wear designs are not pressure garments, which is why there is no helmet, hardware or mechanics. The virgin space wear does not provide pressure in case of emergencies like the ACES and the OCES we saw yesterday at NASAs press announcement. Virgin has already flown multiple people just above the Karman Line (the line that differentiates between the earths atmosphere and outer space) before quickly returning to earths atmosphere. These flights the passengers did not wear pressure garments spacesuits. It’s not an IVA or EVA spacesuit, so what is it? 🔹
A cool design that’s giving me a lot of inspo for some concepts.
