We had the good fortune of connecting with Renée Christensen and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Renée, we’d love to hear about how you approach risk and risk-taking
No risk, no reward!

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I have an eclectic background which is helpful when working at such a small, growing business. We all have to wear so many hats, and as the business evolves and changes, so do we. I originally came in as one of the first employees, working part-time to help out with brand marketing events, and today I am the Director of Marketing. Of course it was not easy, and the truth is that working at a start up comes with a lot of uncertainty and discomfort along the way. But that’s what I love about it, too. No one day is ever the same, and working on such a small team allows us to be agile and make decisions as we go, even if we aren’t always certain they’re the right ones. There’s a lot of risk taking, but as one of our founders always says: no risk, no reward!

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
It goes without saying that each and every hardworking member of our small but mighty team deserves a shoutout!
