SiliconCaribe 2020 : It’s Time to Get Back to Basics

Primary tabs

This blog has been heavily dominated by curated news and sponsored posts for a little while now. I’ve done very little actual writing. I took a year-long sabbatical from the Caribbean tech industry, after ending Kingston Beta my pioneering 11-year-old tech startup community event series and startup mentorships. I also drastically cut my speaking engagements and ended my advisory roles with government boards focused on tech entrepreneurship and innovation.  I did the podcast pilot and pauses. Truth is, I felt myself on the brink of what would have been a second burnout. I had lost interest in things I’d previously loved, I was feeling tired and drained. So I literally dropped everything. 
It was a time to take a break, put the oxygen mask on myself and see things more clearly and try to figure out what would be next.
