By working so closely with Ali (founder) of Modern Picnic I learned not only more about product development and the agendas, teams, and resources needed to build a company, but also how to think like a founder.
Working with her, I was able to learn how to develop relationships for longterm connections, how to negotiate with others and find opportunities, and to follow the things that you value to always be enthusiastic about your work. This in turn will affect how you treat others, and your passion can encourage others to become more invested in the shared goal as well.
