Whats up world!
As I continue to work with Michael and Jeremy our jobs continue to change. One of the things that I find valuable about working at a startup such as LiftPort is that there is never a shortage of important work to be done. Since there is an overwhelming amount of work to do, I think it is possible for interns to get far more experience basis the fact that the company isn't already established in their own ways and furthermore, I might be able to impact LiftPort in a positive way, it makes being an intern feel a lot more valuable.
Alright, so what does my day look like here, well as I mentioned last week we work starting at 8 am every morning and have complete access to this project. The first couple weeks that Michael, Jeremy, and I started with a lot of planning. We went through and planned our lives at LiftPort for the next 90 days of summer (give or take a few). It was a long but rewarding process, we utilized the noumenia process which is a way of setting and planning out a company designed by Michael. This process will be included in a text book that is currently being written but its an incredible system. After our first few weeks of planning, we are now starting honest work. A lot of what I am doing is writing reports to send out to investors as well as assisting in assembling the TAC (Technical Advisory Council)
One thing that I don’t think I have mentioned is that I am also currently taking a few summer classes in conjunction with LiftPort. This has proven to be a challenge to balance classes, life, and LiftPort all at once but it is extremely rewarding. My day begins at 8 am every morning and it begins with class, then LiftPort, then class again. Its honestly exhausting in its own way. I work a full work day but am required to be plugged into 3 completely unrelated fields which leaves my brain fuzzy by the end of it all. All in all, getting in on the ground floor of this company has been nothing short of incredible, the opportunities that I have been given here are unparalleled to the experience that I might gain elsewhere.
See you all next week,
