Bring your own Prosecco 🥂 Ohayo is a perfect kick-start for your Saturday morning: short, fun, usually has a clever idea and a burst of emotions.

I tried to find a cringier photo than the one on the cover and I succeeded. But Lera told me to GTFO with my choice. This is how my typical day at work feels 100 times.

We argue, fight, work and create. Then we get tired of each other and part our ways to meet on Monday and continue rocking on. 🎸

I feel privileged and lucky. But I also do my best to listen, adapt, learn and do everything else possible to be a good friend and a good co-founder.

For example, we buy each other soup. 🍲

I was hanging out with a fellow TikTok influencer with a huge following today. She has stopped and found “a real job” because being an online content creator was too taxing on her mental state.

I told her how Lera and I support and facilitate each other’s creativity, help each other to maintain the mood, take over tasks and jump on the forefront if one of us gets tired.

If not for that, I would have burned out one zillion times this year.
