At the end of last year, we closed down our membership community, Screw U. It was an extremely hard decision, especially knowing that we had connected with some incredible people over the last 3 years. Does this mean we will NEVER start another membership again in the future? Of course not! We love this business model and there is definitely a chance we will open up another one again in the future. In this episode, we discuss the mistakes we made and how we will do it differently in the future.
