Jessica, thanks so much for sharing. Your life really resonates with me and it is refreshing to know that others have been (or currently are) in a similar situation as I'm in (or have been). It's like a form of therapy. I'm grateful to have a wonderful mentor and she told me something that really clicked about my low confidence which I'll share with you: she said, "Angela you're looking at it from a negative view. You don't have confidence issues, you just need to practice what high confidence is." She had me look up things people do who have high confidence and I practiced those actions. Example: stop apologizing so much! That difference in mindset really helped me a lot. Hope the same for you. Thanks again!

Hi Jessica - thanks for sharing, what an interesting story. I can definitely relate to the stress of relocating out here with spouse and pets. My question is a little off-topic but I'm asking because you're a community manager. I looked at the jobs section and I see that Y C partners can post positions. How does one become a partner for this? I have a few strong connections up the Y C foodchain but maybe it's simple enough that I don't need to bug them?

I'm unsure about this as I am not a part of YC... maybe @cadran would know?
