When I was working at Deskera, the first year was so intense. Whoever worked at an early stage startup will know what I mean. You have to work 200% - 300% of your capacity. Kendrick was on the other side of the table. He was the main coordinator of the project.
In 2014, I worked until the last day of Chinese New Year. Around 6.00pm, everybody has left the office, except me and Kendrick.
He stood at the door of the small project office which I was working on for the past year. He asked me why I was still in the office. He said that he would call the CEO of Deskera and ask his permission to let me go home. He did that.
I bought the last ticket for the last flight heading home. I was sitting in the last row of the plane. I managed to catch the 3-day of Chinese New Year with family before I was asked to go back to Singapore by the CEO of Deskera.
Time flew by. Kendrick left the company. I left Deskera.
We still got in touch after that project. We attempted to work together on at least a separate project but things did not work out well.
Kendrick has gone back to his home town in the Bahamas.
He is now his own boss.
Never ever give up your dreams.
Happy New Year 2021 everyone!
